Comprehensive Care for Cardiac Arrhythmias
Education and Training
Advanced training in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology is offered as a 2-year program which may be integrated with the general clinical cardiology fellowship. Based on availability, the program will accept candidates who have completed their core cardiology clinical training at other ACGME-approved institutions. The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology program at Yale is accredited by the ACGME, and meets or exceeds all ACGME requirements. Senior electrophysiology fellows participate in all aspects of clinical care on the service, and also staff an arrhythmia clinic at VA Connecticut (West Haven) where they provide device follow-up as well as the initial consultative evaluation of complex arrhythmia problems. The overall clinical experience includes evaluation of patients with a wide range of common and uncommon rhythm disorders, care of patients in the inpatient and outpatient settings, and the acquisition of the technical skills necessary for the practice of electrophysiology. Specific formal didactic instruction is an important component of the program as well.
