Welcome from the Program Director

Welcome to the University of Arizona – Phoenix Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship site. Our fellowship’s goal is to train and mentor aspiring cardiac electrophysiologists with a focus on delivering high quality patient care and an emphasis on academic medicine and scholarly advancement within the field.

Fellows are trained in the care for patient with cardiac arrhythmias. This would include patients with atrial arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, complex atrial tachycardias and super ventricular tachycardia, ventricular arrhythmias and bradyarrhythmia’s. The trainees are mentored and expected to be proficient in intra-cardiac procedures including cardiac arrhythmia ablation and cardiac electronic device implantation. There will also be time allotted for research activities as scholarly work will be expected.

The fellows training will have a strong emphasis on delivering patient care with the utmost level of professionalism and ethics. The fellowship takes place at a tertiary care University hospital that serves the needs of an urban community. Our fellows will achieve this mission by learning from highly trained and achieved faculty and working in a multidisciplinary fashion with both physician and non-physician colleagues to ensure the highest standards of patient care and outcomes.
