The University of Michigan Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship (CCEP) aims to prepare and nurture innovators who are committed to high quality patient care and advancing the field of electrophysiology. The electrophysiology fellows are an essential component of the division, and our faculty are firmly committed to training the academic leaders of tomorrow.
Fellows train in state of the art facilities and develop their clinical acumen by managing the high volume, high acuity patient population at the University of Michigan Health System. During their training, with close staff mentoring, fellows will gain expertise in the indications, limitations, complications and techniques of the diagnostic and therapeutic tools available to electrophysiologists and the use of pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic therapeutic options for treating cardiac arrhythmias. They will receive advanced training encompassing complex ablations and cardiovascular implantbale electronic devices with exposure to the latest available technologies in the field.
Through the CCEP core curriculum, fellows participate in regular didactic sessions including lectures on clinical arrhythmia management, electrogram interpretation, procedural techniques, basic science of arrhythmias, and reviews of current literature. Speakers include the clinical electrophysiology faculty, faculty from other divisions throughout the university, basic science and clinical researchers, as well as invited external experts.
In addition to the focus on clinical training, research is an important component of the fellows' experience at the University of Michigan. Fellows will be mentored by divisional faculty and provided the opportunity to develop skills in clinical or basic science research. Research opportunities include independent literature review, development and implementation of clinical studies, statistical data analysis, preparation of abstracts and full manuscripts for peer-reviewed publication, and preparation of grants.
