During the Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship, you are responsible for performing and interpreting electrophysiological studies with the responsible consultant. Regular teaching sessions are given by staff consultants.
Two to three days each week, you will:
- Examine each patient coming to the Electrophysiology Laboratory, interpret the results of the procedure, and enter the results into an electronic database
- Pursue clinical research in the area of electrophysiology
No weekday call is required, but one weekend a month on call is mandatory.
You may moonlight with program director approval. Moonlighting should not interfere with the required learning and must not violate the duty-hour rules of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) or visa regulations.
You are required to conduct scholarly activity during your fellowship and submit two manuscripts for peer review.
Clinical conferences, seminars, small discussion groups, journal clubs, and one-on-one instruction are integral parts of this fellowship.
Opportunities are available for you to teach rotating residents and medical students.
To ensure that you acquire adequate knowledge and develop the appropriate technical skills to meet program expectations, your performance is monitored carefully during the Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship. You are formally evaluated by supervising faculty members on a regular basis and meet with the program director to review these evaluations. In addition, you regularly evaluate the faculty to confirm that your educational goals are being met.
