Canadian Cardiovascular Society

CAN-Fuel Program (CANadian Cardiovascular FUturE Leaders)

CCS recognizes the need to support early-career members and are committed to ensuring generational development and representation across our programs and activities. That’s why we’re excited to announce a new CCS program called CAN-Fuel (CANadian Cardiovascular FUturE Leaders). 

The CAN-Fuel program focuses on leadership development among early-career members, including those who are transitioning to practice. 
The cohort for the inaugural meeting of the program at CCC has been selected.
