Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship Program

Voltage map of the left atrium from the PA view. This patient had undergone previous AF ablation and had reconnection of the pulmonary veins.The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology (EP) Fellowship Program at the University of Wisconsin - Madison is a full service EP program offering state-of-the-art training. We have nine full-time clinical faculty members in addition to a large basic science program in ion channel and translational research in inherited arrhythmias. Our current Chief of the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Dr. Mohamed Hamdan, is a member of the Board of Trustees for the Heart Rhythm Society.

The clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship training program is fully accredited by the ACGME for two electrophysiology fellows and we offer advanced EP subspecialty research and clinical training focused on advanced ablation. Our fellows rotate through the UW Hospital and Clinics as well as the attached William S. Middleton Memorial VH and Meriter Hospital. 

Fellows also attend weekly EP conference, Journal Club, ECG, and other CVM conferences, and actively participate in diagnostic electrophysiologic studies, complex ablation procedures and device implants. We offer experience in laser lead extraction and left atrial appendage closure. Additional strengths of the program include a dedicated inherited arrhythmias clinic as well as the Faint and Falls clinic.

PLEASE NOTE: Effective 2018, our CCEP fellowship program participate in ERAS and the NRMP Match for recruitment. We will next accept applications for positions starting July 2020 (2019 recruitment cycle) when ERAS opens to candidates for that cycle. Note that at this time, the opening date for the 2019 CCEP recruitment cycle has yet to be confirmed, but is likely to occur June 2019. Check ERAS for updates in early 2019.
