The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology (EP) Fellowship Program at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill is a is a 24-month training program (12 months ACGME accredited). Funding is available for two fellows at the PGY 7 level or greater.
The fellowship is a high volume, hands-on supervised training program in state-of-the-art facilities at UNC. Fellows are exposed to a broad spectrum of approaches and technologies in the treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders. As a major referral center for the southeast, fellows will be exposed to a high volume of complex procedures.
In addition to a busy clinical service, electrophysiology fellows will have ample opportunities to participate in research. Fellows will be expected to conduct at least one mentored research project, which should lead to a manuscript or research presentation by the end of their training.
