ACC will offer its educational content to physicians participating in Apollo’s Medvarsity e-learning programme

The American College of Cardiology (ACC), a US medical body, has joined hands with Apollo Hospitals to provide new opportunities to cardiovascular physicians to improve their skills.

Reportedly, as per the collaboration, ACC will offer its educational content to physicians participating in Apollo’s Medvarsity e-learning programme. Medvarsity participants will have access to the ACC’s valvular heart disease education module, which focuses on training healthcare professionals in the diagnosis and management of adult patients with valvular heart disease.

This content exchange is the first in an ongoing bilateral exchange of professional health education content between the ACC and Apollo, a statement said.

“With this partnership, we’re making possible a knowledge exchange between physicians and other healthcare professionals that may not interact under normal circumstances,” said Kim Allan Williams, President, ACC.

“It’s opening up brand new opportunities for physicians in India to improve their skills, expand their knowledge and, ultimately, provide the best possible care to their patients,” he added.

Sangita Reddy, Joint MD, Apollo Group, said, “The world is seeing an alarming increase in cardiovascular disease burden. It is important that the healthcare industry stakeholders join hands to ensure that we have the required number of clinicians skilled enough to deal with the situation while ensuring readiness on other fronts.”
