Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship
The clinical cardiac electrophysiology program aims to provide our fellows with a training experience that will enable them to pursue a successful career in cardiac electrophysiology, either in academic medicine or private practice. Trainees spend time at both McGuire Veterans Affairs Medical Center and VCU Medical Center. We have seven (six full-time and one part-time) faculty members. Fellows gain extensive experience at each site in a wide variety of procedures, including radiofrequency ablation of supraventricular (including atrial fibrillation) and ventricular arrhythmias, implantation of pacemakers and defibrillators (including biventricular pacemakers and defibrillators), and evaluation of patients with autonomic disorders. The training program also includes the opportunity to evaluate and perform procedures in children with arrhythmias.
There are basic science research facilities and collaboration activities at VCU with faculty members in the departments of physiology, and pharmacology and toxicology, as well as opportunities to do clinical research in most aspects of diagnosis and treatment of clinical arrhythmias with ablation and device therapy. There are also opportunities to interact with both faculty and graduate students in the biomedical engineering program as well as members in the departments of pathology and radiology.
