Associate Professor of Medicine/Cardiology

The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Program at the University of Rochester is a two-year ACGME-accredited fellowship program that offers extensive training in the invasive as well as non-invasive treatment for patients with cardiac arrhythmias.

A central goal of our program is to prepare physicians to be outstanding clinical and academic cardiac electrophysiologists. 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 and ventricular tachy-arrhythmias, advanced implantation and management of cardiac resynchronization devices, as well as extraction of implantable devices.

All fellows are encouraged to participate in faculty lead clinical research and to carry out their own research projects. Our close affiliation with the Clinical Cardiology Research Center, together with large databases of arrhythmia patients, here at the University of Rochester afford our fellows ample opportunities to conduct clinical research and advanced their research skills.

The Electrophysiology Fellowship Coordinator is Amy Gregory, and she can be reached via email or phone:
