Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship
We request that prospective Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology program (CCEP) fellowship candidates commit to two years of training beyond the three years of fellowship in cardiovascular disease. We feel the second year of training is necessary to acquire competency in complex ablation (e.g. atrial fibrillation), and to have additional time for research and autonomous clinical activity (junior faculty position).
The mission of the Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship training program at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is to educate and train highly-skilled, principled physicians prepared to function as sub-specialists in the care of patients with cardiac rhythm disturbances. We strive to promote excellence in education and patient care by providing outstanding clinical training in a rich clinical academic environment. We train excellent and competent clinical cardiac electrophysiologists prepared for careers in clinical practice, teaching, research and/or public service.
We offer a nationally accredited electrophysiology training program. The program aims to train fellows who have completed their general cardiology training to be excellent and competent clinical cardiac electrophysiologists with the acquisition of a core skill set that reflects the needs of their future clinical practice.
We aim to achieve this with a 2-year program that is rooted in a mentorship model, with a progressive attainment of skills and increasing expectations of autonomy as the training process continues. Upon completion of training, we anticipate our fellows to emerge as medical educators with skills to pursue academic as well as non-academic clinical electrophysiology.
The program provides a teaching environment that is highly educational and supportive, with a focus on patient-centered care and respect for others.
