Welcome to the Robotic EP Fellows Program

Welcome to the

Robotic EP

Fellows Program

The Robotic EP Fellows Program allows you, a forward-thinking electrophysiology fellow, to augment your clinical and career development through mastery of robotic skill sets. The program is designed to enhance your existing curriculum with a streamlined and parallel path to mastery of robotic magnetic navigation. It is intended to provide incremental value to your fellowship by providing the following:

Early & Safe Hands-on Participation in Procedures

A robotic magnetic catheter is intrinsically forgiving of errors and safe for patients due to a catheter design free from internal pull wires or shaft rigidity. This unmatched safety profile allows for physicians with limited ablation experience to actively participate in all aspects of cardiac ablation procedures. Robotics navigates a catheter from the distal tip – improving catheter reach, precision and stability – facilitating otherwise difficult or impossible procedures.

Enhanced Appreciation of Heart Anatomy and ECG Analysis

Robotics provides you with the ability to independently control catheter navigation, as well as all 3D mapping, diagnostic, imaging, and treatment information. By enabling independent creation of cardiac maps, and by displaying maps and ECG data on a large computer screen directly in front of you, robotics is an ideal mechanism by which you can quickly deepen working knowledge of cardiac 3D anatomy and ECG analysis.

Exposure to Advanced Robotic Technology

You will be exposed to robotic technology early in your career. With over 100,000 patients treated with Stereotaxis technology, and at a time when various surgical specialties are being transformed by robotics, it is difficult to imagine a future in which such technology will not be utilized more in electrophysiology. Your involvement will contribute to the evolution of the field and allow for contribution to novel research and technology development.

Improved Career Opportunities

Mastery of both traditional manual catheter and robotic magnetic catheter navigation skills differentiates and enhances your resume and competitive attraction to hospitals. Stereotaxis will leverage its global network of nearly 200 robotic EP programs, providing guidance and support to pair you with the increasing number of programs seeking physicians with robotic ablation experience and expertise.

Program Design

The Robotic EP Fellows Program is designed to facilitate deep understanding of the magnetic environment and mastery of robotic magnetic navigation. Fellows satisfactorily completing all program requirements will receive a certificate acknowledging their completion of the program and detailed documentation of their experience with robotic cardiac ablation. The core program design includes hands-on didactic training, navigation simulator training, and live case training. The program may be enhanced with additional optional components such as hands-on heart anatomy sessions, animal procedures, interactions with other fellows participating in the program, and participation in meetings of the Society for Cardiac Robotic Navigation.
