Principal Teaching/Learning Activities

The curriculum is reviewed at least semi-annually in a curriculum committee meeting that includes the program director, key faculty, and the fellows.  The following activities within the fellowship program provide learning and teaching opportunities for the trainee in clinical cardiac electrophysiology:

Direct Patient Care

The collaborative relationship between attending physician and trainee in the delivery of patient care is at the core of this Program; the provision of high-quality patient care is the fundamental vehicle for teaching and learning of all the required competencies. In the development of educational objectives direct patient care is broadly and somewhat arbitrarily divided into those three loci of care where the particular skills required of the successful sub-specialist in cardiac electrophysiology differ:

  • Out-Patient clinic including implantable device follow up clinic (DPC-OP*)
  • Hospital, including coronary, medical and surgical intensive care units and the emergency department (DPC-H*)
  • Electrophysiology Laboratory (DPC-EPL*)


Teaching conferences are convened at the institutional, departmental and section level and all contribute to the educational experience of the cardiac electrophysiology trainee.
