The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship at Mount Sinai Morningside
The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship at Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital is an ACGME accredited fellowship program that prepares and trains fellows in the diagnosis and management of cardiac arrhythmias. Prior to starting the fellowship, qualified applicants will have already completed a fellowship in general cardiology and met standard requirements for application. The two year fellowship program is designed to prepare fellows to acquire both procedural skills and the knowledge level to succeed in their respective careers. They will be exposed to training in all facets of cardiac electrophysiology that includes catheter ablation, device implantation, and non-invasive modalities of patient management.
The core components of the fellowship program includes the inpatient consultation service, outpatient consultation service, and the main cardiac electrophysiology laboratory. Fellows will gain sufficient experience in the clinical management of patients with cardiac arrhythmias and will also acquire the procedural skills to become adept at the full range of invasive procedures that include:
- Mapping and ablation of supraventricular tachycardias
- Mapping and ablation of ventricular tachycardia
- Cardiac resynchronization therapy
- Transvenous pacemaker/defibrillator implant
- Leadless pacemaker implant
- Percutaneous left atrial appendage occlusion
- Laser and manual extraction of both leadless devices and transvenous leads
- Subcutaneous defibrillator implantation
- Tilt table testing and non-invasive programmed stimulation of devices.
The electrophysiology laboratory at Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital performs well over 2,000 procedures per year and there is a robust academic schedule to provide the fellows with adequate education; this includes literature review, case report presentations, core lectures, journal club, and hands-on sessions for device troubleshooting. The laboratory also receives a robust volume of referral cases and fellows will provide consultation services to the Mount Sinai West Hospital.
