Under the supervision of an electrophysiology (EP) attending staff physician, the first-year fellow spends one month on the EP rotation and functions as a consultant for all inpatients and selected outpatients with arrhythmias. The fellow is responsible for coordinating patient management of arrhythmias including diagnosis and pharmacologic treatment, participation in esophageal electrophysiology studies, cardioversions and exercise studies, and daily review and interpretation of electrocardiograms, Holter studies, and event monitor transmissions. Fellows should prepare for and participate in interventional and surgical EP cases as well, such as radiofrequency ablation procedures and pacemaker placements. A fourth year position in electrophysiology is available to one selected fellow per year.
