Electrophysiology Fellowship

The clinical cardiac electrophysiology fellowship is a two year program designed to provide trainees with the knowledge and skill sets necessary to become an electrophysiologist. All applicants must complete three years of general cardiology training prior to the electrophysiology fellowship start date.

 Location, Supervision and Training

Time will be divided between two primary locations which are both teaching hospitals of the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW). Supervision will be provided by four board certified electrophysiologists at Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital and two board certified electrophysiologists at the Zablocki Veteran Affairs Hospital (VA). At each location, a considerable percentage of the fellow’s time will be spent in the EP laboratory performing procedures including device implantation, EP studies and simple and complex ablations. The fellow will also participate in device extractions. Additionally, the fellow will see inpatient consults on a daily basis and participate in a weekly one-half day outpatient continuity clinic. Two one-half days per month will also be spent in a device clinic learning how to interrogate, interpret and program implantable pacemakers and defibrillators.

 Education

The fellow will participate in weekly electrophysiology core clinical conferences which will be held every Monday morning at the VA. A monthly journal club will also be included in the core conference schedule along with a weekly electrogram analysis conference. The fellow will be encouraged to attend at least one national meeting per year (HRS, ACC or AHA).

 Research

Participation in research will be an important component of the fellowship. Under the supervision of an electrophysiology or cardiology faculty member, the fellow will be expected to formulate a hypothesis, design a methodology, analyze results and then formulate conclusions based on those results. The fellow will then be encouraged to present his/her research at an annual meeting such as the scientific sessions of the Heart Rhythm Society.
