The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Program at the University Of Rochester is an ACGME-accredited program that offers an extensive training in the non-invasive as well as invasive treatment for patients with cardiac arrhythmias. Our training program is a two-year fellowship, including one year being ACGME plus one non-ACGME year.
A central goal of our program is to prepare physicians to be outstanding cardiovascular and electrophysiology clinicians. We aim to help each fellow develop comprehensive and exceptional clinical skills in all areas of clinical electrophysiology. The fellows receive training in a wide range of cardiac electrophysiologic and pacing procedures, including complex catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia, implantation and management of cardiac resynchronization devices, as well as extraction of implantable devices.
All fellows are encouraged to participate in our clinical research and to carry out their own research projects. Our close affiliation with the Heart Research group, together with large databases of arrhythmia patients, here at the University of Rochester afford excellent opportunities to develop further clinical research skills.
