The American Board of Cardiovascular Medical Accreditation, Inc.

Alliance for Education:
Though the ABCM does not directly host review courses to prepare for the Certification Exams, however we have formed an Alliance with the Marriott Heart Foundation, Inc., along with her subsidiary organizations who host several cardiology courses including the annual Clinical Cardiology Course for Nurse Practitioners, the popular Cardiovascular Nursing Course for Cardiac Nurses, and 3 Levels of Electrocardiography Courses both live, and online on demand.
Marriott Heart Foundation (MHF) - Supporting Physician, Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant, Nursing, and Technical Education in Cardiology. The MHF (named for our late Co-Founder, Dr. Henry J. L. Marriott) provides Sub-Specialty Educational opportunities to the gamut of cardiovascular care givers from physician to technician. The ABCM highly recommends the Marriott Heart Foundation for most of your Cardiology Education and Certification Preparation. The reason is simple: Marriott did not believe in mediocrity in education, and his standards were high but by no means unrealistic. Some of his famous last words of advice to MHF Founder Jonni Cooper, was to request that she not lower our standards but rather to encourage our students to raise their standard through knowledge.
