About the Association of University Cardiologists
Founded in 1961, the Association of University Cardiologists is an organization that is limited to an active membership of 125 academic cardiologists from the United States, elected by their peers. The group has a purely educational purpose and meets once per year in January for a two-day session of scientific interchange. The members traditionally are the leaders and best investigators in American cardiology. The Association of University Cardiologists contains those cardiologists who shape the course of research and training in cardiovascular disease in this country.
