About the Program

The ACGME-accredited Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship is sponsored by Baylor College of Medicine and based at the Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center.

The goal of this training program, which is supported by Texas Heart Institute professional teaching staff, is to train excellent, scholarly, clinical cardiac electrophysiologists with a vast and diverse experience in clinical and interventional electrophysiology. We intend to train leaders in the field of clinical cardiac electrophysiology (CCEP) who will function as practitioners, teachers and researchers in hospitals and private practices around the world.

This program accepts one to two trainees per year, and provides a unique opportunity for training. A special feature of this program is that the CCEP fellows have constant faculty supervision, guidance and training, and they are never placed in a position that requires him/her to perform duties beyond their level of training. Trainees who complete our program have a 100 percent EP Board pass rate.

Curriculum

The CCEP fellows evaluate elective cases in the outpatient setting of the Texas Heart Institute outpatient clinic, and they also evaluate inpatient consults or admissions at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center. These fellows then perform the electrophysiology study under direct and constant supervision, discussing treatment, and providing further care and management to the patient cases. Fellows also attend several regularly scheduled conferences (RSC) and have a number of opportunities to conduct research, including clinical trials and device development, among THI’s multiple research laboratories. Fellows also have the opportunity to participate as reviewers for the Texas Heart Institute Journal.

Interested applicants should provide:

  • A completed application
