About the Program

  • 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.
  • Active Electrophysiology Lab with research in
    • Cardiac mapping,
    • Defibrillation
    • Effects of drugs on defibrillation
    • Monophasic action potential recording

What our fellows say...

Natalia Hernandez, MD

"Cardiac Electrophysiology fellowship at URMC was a perfect fit for me. The training I received was top quality, with a very collegial environment, which set up a strong foundation for my independent practice as a specialist and, at the same time, allowed me to be a part of my family as a mother and a wife. During my time as a fellow, excellent faculty support was provided when needed, while allowing my independence to grow and skills to develop. By the end of my training, I have got expertise in the full spectrum of Cardiac Electrophysiology both, clinically and procedurally, including the latest technology in the field. I felt that if I chose to set up my own practice after the fellowship, I would have had sufficient experience to do it. This was a perfect opportunity for me and would join this program all over again."
