ACC Past President and one of the Founders of the Florida Chapter C. Richard Conti, MD, MACC said:
All cardiovascular specialists need the company, the talents, the insights,
and the contributions of other human beings to grow and develop productively.
As we work with our own colleagues and other medical organizations in the United States,
it is obvious that it is just as important to develop relationships with cardiovascular specialists abroad.
The FCACC-SEC Preceptorship is an international clinical experience that aims to have FACCs and Associate Fellows who are currently in practice, in Florida, (private/academic/hospital-based) learn about the health system in Spain and get in-depth presentations and observe the latest technologies and therapies in the hospital setting.
The FCACC-SEC Preceptorship experiences in 2023 are built to offer two options to interested members. One is a shorter experience for those who have limited time but want to support the partnership and the other is a more in-depth trip designed to allow FCACC members time to interact with additional SEC members in different regions.

The FCACC and the Sociedad Espanola de Cardiologia (SEC) are a part of the American College of Cardiology’s International Exchange program. The SEC-FCACC relationship was formed through a desire of both organizations to develop long-term relationships between cardiovascular professionals in the United States and Spain.
Thoughts on the Preceptorship Experience
"The clinical experience was extremely rich and comprehensive. Certainly it was a great privilege to be able to learn from several truly Spanish Masters of Cardiology and Science. I cannot wait to return to my Spanish colleagues and share the joy of learning." ~Octavio Cosme, MD, FACC
