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 department chairman, Dr. Richard Page, is past president of the Heart Rhythm Society and our current Chief of the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Dr. Mohamed Hamdan, is a member on 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 VA Medical Center 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.
