    Professional Development module

    *Accessible to ACCA paying Members only

    It is essential for acute cardiac care cardiologists to be able to demonstrate their qualifications, training and professionalism to employers, colleagues and patients. This is done in a number of ways depending on the country, national and local requirements, and the specific setting. This section of the ACCA ESCeL is provided to support cardiologists in demonstrating their training, experience and professionalism, building and enhancing their CV, and direct them to some of the freely available resources with which to do this.
