Cardiology, Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship (Arizona)
If you are interested in advance training in electrophysiology, Mayo Clinic invites you to spend one year focusing on clinical practice and research in that subspecialty. You can participate in this one-year Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Subspecialty Fellowship as an independent program after you complete at least three years of accredited cardiovascular diseases training at another institution. You will conduct research and gain specific experience in the intensive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and patient management. During the fellowship, you will:
- Diagnose and treat patients with radiofrequency and cryoablation, for supraventricular arrhythmias (e.g., AV node re-entry, WPW, atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation) and ventricular tachycardia.
- Implant and follow up on all types of investigational implantable cardioverter defibrillators and permanent pacemakers.
- Participate and learn the fundamentals of complex ablation in adults with congenital heart diseases.
- Learn to interpret noninvasive studies such as t-wave alternans, signal-average ECG, head-up tilt table test, event monitors and holter monitors.
- Be expected to participate in clinical or basic electrophysiology research.
Our program schedule includes 11 months of rotation in the electrophysiology laboratory and one month dedicated to research. One day per week throughout the year will be dedicated to outpatient clinic (half-day arrhythmia clinic and half-day cardiac rhythm management device clinic). When you complete this training, you will be eligible for the American Board of Internal Medicine subspecialty examination in cardiac electrophysiology.
The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship began in 2007 and its first fellow will complete the program in 2008. It is anticipated that one fellow will complete training in this program annually.
