George Vetrovec, M.D., was named a Master of Cardiology by the American College of Cardiology (ACC). He is the director of the Adult Cardiac Catheterization Lab at VCU Pauley Heart Center, and he received the award at the organization’s 2014 Annual Convocation in Washington, D.C., on March 31.
The award recognizes distinguished practitioners in the field of cardiology who have consistently shown excellence in education, clinical practice, scholarship and support to the ACC, which has over 43,000 members worldwide.
“This award is given to no more than four people each year, and it’s the American College of Cardiology’s highest honor,” said Kenneth Ellenbogen, M.D., chair of Pauley’s Division of Cardiology. “It recognizes Dr. Vetrovec as someone who has made huge contributions to the field of cardiovascular medicine.”
