The ACC Strategic Framework and ACC Strategy Map should position the College to remain a vibrant professional organization and to continue its mission to advocate for quality cardiovascular care.

The mission of the American College of Cardiology is to advocate for quality cardiovascular care—through education, research promotion, development and application of standards and guidelines—and to influence health care policy.
