Fellows in Training - FIT Opportunities


At AHA, we aim to engage our FITs in meaningful activities that will:

  • Build your portfolio and resumes to advance your career
  • Learn critical and cutting-edge skills and knowledge
  • Provide opportunities for FITs to gain national exposure through the AHA website, social media, and Sessions and conferences

AHA Engagements are meant to be lifelong and career-long.  Advancements in AHA are based on your achievements, efforts in working on behalf of AHA, and continued membership.  We hope FIT Program is a starting point for you at the AHA, and that you will continue to see AHA as your home of Science and Medicine.
