Electrophysiology

Under the leadership of Director Dr. Joseph Akar, Associate Professor of Medicine, the electrophysiology program provides a full spectrum of rhythm management services. These include complex ablations of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia, cardiac device implantations such as pacemakers and defibrillators, and a lead management program led by Dr. Jude Clancy. We provide patient-centered care and use a team-based approach to treat patients across Connecticut with a wide variety of heart rhythm problems.

Research

Clinical investigation is a fundamental component of the activities of the Electrophysiology Service. The Electrophysiology Service has participated in a number of NIH and industry sponsored clinical trials.

Fellows Training

The Electrophysiology Service and faculty are an integral component of the fellowship program in Cardiovascular Medicine at Yale. Training in basic aspects of electrophysiology is available to all fellows. A comprehensive course in ECG interpretation, lead by Dr. Lynda Rosenfeld, provides clinical cardiology fellows with training in ECG interpretation.
