Synopsis: The Missouri Chapter has been active in setting up yearly meetings for the FIT's. We have 4 medical
schools in Missouri and have involved a cardiology fellow from each institution with planning our meetings
so topics that are timely to the fellows are presented. We have had active participation form the program
directors of each cardiac program intimately involved in the programs. We have had attorneys talking about
malpractice issures, attorneys talking on signing contracts for practice and had a forum with cardiologists from different
types of cardiology practice for panel discussion for our fellows in Missouri. We have had a poster competition
with cash awards for the best posters to spur interest in academic achievement. We have also set up a Missouri
ACC Foundation and been able to raise $88,000 in the last 2 years to support programs. This gives us latitude to have
financial solvency to take on programs that would not be possible though dues and usual support channels.
