Vera Bittner, MD, MSPH, FACC, has been named editor-in-chief of ACCSAP, the American College of Cardiology’s self-assessment program covering the entire field of adult clinical cardiology.

For more than 25 years, ACCSAP has helped its users hone their knowledge of cardiovascular disease by identifying their knowledge gaps, reinforcing their existing knowledge and helping them to learn new information.  It’s a best-in-class resource for preparing for the initial or maintenance of certification exam in cardiovascular disease, and it offers an abundance of CME/MOC credit. As of 2019, it also delivers the Collaborative Maintenance Pathway (CMP), a third assessment option for meeting the ABIM’s MOC assessment requirement.

As editor, Bittner will lead the program’s development by working with the editorial board and editors of comparable programs to create and maintain content development standards and ensure desired content objectives.

“Dr. Bittner is an outstanding clinician-educator and dedicated academician,” said Patrick T. O’Gara, editor-in-chief of CMP programs and ACC past president. “Her vast experience will ensure the continued strength of the ACCSAP program for general cardiology for keeping cardiovascular disease clinicians up-to-date in our continuously evolving field.”

Bittner is an academic cardiologist with over 30 years’ experience as a clinician, researcher, educator/mentor and administrator with a primary interest in cardiovascular disease prevention. She has been with the Division of Cardiovascular Disease at the University of Alabama at Birmingham since 1987, where she is currently a professor of medicine and head of general cardiology, prevention and imaging.

Bittner has a long history of leadership within the College. She was most recently the ACCSAP Prevention Topic Editor and has previously served as chair of the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease Council and a member of the Scientific Session Program Committee, Guidelines Implementation Working Group and COCATS Task Force.

Her five-year term as ACCSAP editor begins June 1.
