Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship

Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship

The two-year ACGME-accredited Geisinger Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship will give you the advanced training and faculty support you need to reach that goal. Certification is the first step in any successful career in clinical cardiac electrophysiology.

If you’re chosen as the one fellow we accept each year, you’ll gain experience with basic procedures such as pacemaker implantation and complex procedures including epicardial mapping and ablations. And because we’re one of the few centers in the nation to do epicardial appendage procedures — and we’re internationally recognized for our pioneering work in conduction system pacing — physicians from around the world come here to learn.

As a Geisinger clinical cardiac electrophysiology fellow, you’ll evaluate and manage patients with arrhythmia-related conditions, including palpitations, syncope, atrial arrhythmias, ventricular arrhythmias and congestive heart failure.

You’ll report on each patient encounter to the supervising EP attending, who will help expand your knowledge and hone your skills.
