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. Enhance your EP training with a streamlined and parallel path to mastery of Robotic EP with:

  • Early and safe hands-on participation in procedures
  • Enhanced appreciation of heart anatomy and ECG analysis
  • Exposure to advanced robotic technology
  • Improved career opportunities

Program Design

  • Hands-on didactic training
  • Live procedure training
  • Navigation simulator training

Enhanced program experience can also include hands-on heart anatomy sessions, animal procedures, networking opportunities, and participation in meetings of the Society for Cardiac Robotic 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.
