New York FIT Jeopardy Competition

The New York State Chapter of the American College of Cardiology and the New York Cardiological Society host a friendly, annual FIT Jeopardy Competition to determine which three (3) Fellows in Training (FITs) will be sent to the national ACC competition each spring. A stipend is provided.

Any FIT who will be enrolled in a cardiovascular fellowship training or an advanced cardiology sub-specialty training program as of the date of ACC’s Annual Meeting (typically in March) is eligible. (In other words, the FIT must be a Fellow in Training at the time of the nomination from his/her training director and MUST STILL BE a qualified FIT when ACC’s Annual Meeting occurs.)

Congrats to the state FIT Jeopardy winners — Viswajit Reddy Anugu, MBBS; Boutros Karam, MD; and Samer Saouma, MD who will be competing at ACC.21!

  • The winners of the New York FIT Jeopardy Competition compete nationally at ACC’s Annual Conference!
  • Looking to compete? The next state competition will likely be sometime later in 2021. If you are interested and eligible to compete, please ask your program director to submit your name to the New York State Chapter staff at ask@ny-acc.org.
  • Just want to be a spectator? Please register for the event – more information coming soon! Should you desire additional information, please call (212) 686-0228 or email ask@ny-acc.org.

Stay tuned for more information!
