Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology - Curriculum Rotations
UC Medical Center/Cincinnati VA Medical Center
The overall purpose of the electrophysiology lab rotation is to prepare trainees to function at high levels of clinical performance in cardiac electrophysiology.
Fellows participate in all aspects of pre-procedure planning, perform the critical technical manipulations of the procedure and demonstrate substantial involvement in post-procedure care while being supervised by teaching faculty responsible for the procedure.
The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology fellow gains specific experience in intensive diagnostic, therapeutic procedures and patient management and conducts research in the field of Cardiac Electrophysiology.
The VA Medical Center offers the fellow a complex patient population and provides electrophysiology procedures and exposure to the Robotic Ablation System.
Cardiac Electrophysiology Continuity Clinic
Fellows attend continuity clinic, where they are exposed to a wide spectrum of clinical electrophysiology pathologies, will interrogate, troubleshoot and reprogram pacemakers, Bivs, and ICDs in follow-up and will observe and learn the course of the electrophysiology disease.
