The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship Program at Mayo Clinic provides comprehensive training in the basics of cardiac electrophysiology, complex mapping and ablation procedures, device implantation, device extraction and resynchronization therapy device implantation and trouble shooting. A variety of mapping and ablation procedures for atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation and supraventricular tachycardia are part of the daily experience. There will be significant exposure to advanced mapping and navigation systems, as well as new therapy, techniques and devices.
This advanced fellowship is a one year accredited training program with an optional unaccredited 2nd year of training available.
For individuals who have already had significant research and exposure to electrophysiology procedures in their general cardiac fellowship, a one year training program may be appropriate.
There are numerous didactic programs during the year where the focus varies from device troubleshooting to complex electrograms analysis and general electrophysiology curricular lectures.
The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship Program at Mayo Clinic fulfills the requirements for training as stated by the American Board of Internal Medicine and is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
When you complete this training, you will be eligible to take the American Board of Internal Medicine's subspecialty examination in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology.
The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship Program at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, began in 1995. Since that time, more than 49 physicians have completed training. It is anticipated that 4 fellows will complete training in this program annually.
