Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship Program

The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship is an ACGME-accredited subspecialty fellowship program within the Division of Cardiology at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences in Washington, D.C. We recruit one CCEP fellow for advanced training annually.

This two-year fellowship provides outstanding preparation in the study of clinical cardiac electrophysiology (EP). Specifically, the fellow is trained in advanced arrhythmia therapies including diagnostic EP testing; arrhythmia mapping and atrial and ventricular ablations; pacemaker, ICD, cardiac resynchronization devices and loop recorder implantations and management; lead extractions as well as noninvasive testing and cardioversions. Throughout the training, the fellow is given increasing responsibility in invasive procedures in the EP laboratory. The parent hospital is the George Washington University Hospital. The CCEP Fellow also has rotations at the Washington VA Medical Center in Washington, D.C. and the Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park, Maryland. The fellow participates in inpatient activities at the three hospitals and in the outpatient device clinic at the Washington VA Medical Center.  While primarily a clinical program, involvement in research or quality improvement projects is encouraged and most fellows participate in presentations and/or publications.  The applicant should be a graduate candidate of an ACGME-accredited program in cardiovascular medicine (completing PGY-6) and cardiology board-certified/board-eligible.
