Overview

The Electrophysiology training program at the University of Washington is designed to prepare  fellows for an academic career of excellence in the performance of electrophysiology procedures, patient care, research, and teaching.

Our program's educational goals and objectives reflect ABIM requirements for certification and address each of the 6 ACGME competencies. In addition, our program is aligned with the 2015 ACC/AHA/HRS Advanced Training Statement on Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology.

CCEP Image

The core of our program is a 2 year experience dedicated primarily to clinical training in the electrophysiology lab. Our multi-state referral base and quaternary referral program for heart failure/transplant/mechanical circulatory support; adult congenital heart disease; and complex structural intervention programs allow for extraordinary breadth of exposure to cutting edge arrhythmia care. Fellows engage in both routine and complex electrophysiology patient management, focusing on device implantation and lead management (extraction); and mapping and ablation of supraventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation (radiofrequency and cryo ablation), and a wide variety of ventricular tachycardia mechanisms.  Fellows spend ½ day a week in the outpatient clinic, and participate in teaching conferences and research projects. We are committed to delivering outstanding educational and academic opportunities in a supportive and intellectually challenging environment. Applicants must have satisfactorily completed three years of a Clinical Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship. The maximum number of fellows in the ACGME CCEP Program is 2 fellows per year of training.
