Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship

Available Positions: 1

ccep.jpegThe CCEP program is a formal two-year program, with the opportunity for a second year, that provides training in clinical electrophysiology. The fellow’s clinical experience will include opportunities to diagnose, manage, and judge the efficacy of treatment for patients with palpitations, syncope, bradyarrhythmias and tachyarrhythmias. The fellowship training will include extensive laboratory experience related to catheter ablation and device implantation procedures. Training will include implantation of pacers, ICDs and CRT devices, radiofrequency ablation of VT, atrial fibrillation, SVT and electroanatomic mapping. The fellow’s clinical experiences will include consultation to physicians in other disciplines, care of the patient before, during and after EPS procedures, care of patients with postoperative arrhythmias, outpatient follow-up of patients treated with drugs, devices, or surgery, and the care and treatment of patients with permanent pacemakers and ICDs. There is also extensive opportunity to participate in clinical research in various areas of electrophysiology. At the end of the program, the fellow will be board-eligible in cardiac electrophysiology.
