Program Highlights

  • There are 2 state-of-the-art clinical cardiac electrophysiologic laboratories for invasive intracardiac electrophysiologic studies and catheter ablation. Both electrophysiology laboratories contain cardiac fluoroscopic equipment, programmable stimulator, recording devices, and resuscitative equipment.
  • Outpatient clinical care mainly consists of participation in faculty clinics. An outpatient follow-up program to care for patients with pacemakers and implantable cardioverters/defibrillators (ICDs) also exist through faculty device clinics.
  • Inpatient clinical care units include cardiac care units (CCUs), cardiac surgical intensive care units. An academic cardiac surgery program is present at the primary training site.
  • Varied research opportunities in clinical research studies
  • Fellows are supported by six RN’s, three Electrophysiology technicians, three nurse practitioners, a research nurse and two secretaries.
