Hays, Kansas – Dr. Byungsoo Ko, Cardiologist and Director of the Cardiovascular Cathertization Laboratory at HaysMed, part of The University of Kansas Health System, was recently elected to a Fellowship in the American College of Cardiology (ACC).
Fellowship is one of the most distinguished designations the AMCC offers its members, and is the ultimate recognition of professional achievement.
Based on outstanding credentials, achievements and community contributions to cardiovascular medicine, those who are elected to Fellowship signal to peers and patients their commitment to quality cardiovascular care through use of the FACC designation. Fellows of the ACC come from all specialties within cardiology and include adult cardiologists, pediatric cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, surgeons, researchers, academicians, specialists in a cardiovascular-related field and cardiovascular team members with advanced degrees.
The strongest evidence of achievement for those who earn the FACC designation comes from the applicant’s peers through letters of sponsorship attesting to their professional competence and commitment to excellence.
“Achieving FACC designation is an important professional milestone for Dr. Ko.” said Dr. Jeffery Curtis, Director of Cardiology Services at HaysMed. “We congratulate him and we are proud to have him as a colleague here at DeBakey Heart Institute at HaysMed.”
