Electrophysiology

Under the leadership of Academic Director Dr. Joseph Akar, Associate Professor of Medicine and Clinical Director, Dr. James Freeman, Associate Professor of Medicine, the electrophysiology program provides a full spectrum of rhythm management services.

These include a Complex Ablation Program (Dr. Akar, Director) focused on atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia that offers epicardial ablation approaches, and a high volume Lead Management Program (Dr. Jude Clancy, Director) that provides laser-based device lead extraction, as well as a comprehensive menu of other EP services.

The EP lab also provides national physician education courses on the use of intracardiac echocardiography (ICE).

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.
