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.)

  • The winners of the New York FIT Jeopardy Competition will compete nationally at ACC.20 in Chicago!
  • Looking to compete? The next state competition will be August 3, 2019, at our Annual Scientific Session. 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
