Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology
We have accepted our 2018-2019 Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellows. Our next recruitment season is expected to begin Fall 2017 for the 2019-2020 academic year.
RECENT NEWS – Heart Rhythm Society Approves a Proposal
The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology (CCEP) Program Directors have expressed strong enthusiasm for participating in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) for CCEP fellowship training programs. The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) approved the proposal to endorse participation in both programs.
The HRS CCEP Program Directors Subcommittee has recommended that participation in the ERAS and NRMP be updated to begin in the fall of 2017 for fellowships beginning July 2019.
That is, CCEP programs will have a match through ERAS or NRMP for CCEP fellowships starting in July 2019.
The CCEP Program Directors Subcommittee will provide additional information as it becomes available through the HRS CCEP Program Directors discussion board, a town hall conference call meeting and direct email messages.
The University of Florida Training Program in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology has two fellowship positions accredited by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Applicants must be completing or have completed an ACGME accredited fellowship in cardiovascular disease. Effective for the 2017-2018 academic year, the CCEP Fellowship is of two-year duration beginning on July 1st of each academic year. Our training program includes all aspects of complex ablation, device therapy, arrhythmia consultation, and electrophysiology research. For additional detailed program information, please review the Clinical Cardiovascular Electrophysiology Goals And Objectives.
Upon completion of the program, fellows are eligible to take the American Board of Medicine (ABIM) board examination in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology.
