Program Director: Kevin Monahan, M.D.

The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship Program at Boston Medical Center/Boston University Medical Center is a two-year ACGME certified program. Two fellows are accepted every other year. Recruitment is ongoing for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Program Goals

To develop future leaders in academic clinical cardiac electrophysiology. To achieve this goal, we promote the development of outstanding clinical skills and provide research training at the highest level. This training in the evaluation, management and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias including diagnostic electrophysiology studies and catheter ablation (radiofrequency and cryoablation) and training in the implantation and management of cardiac devices including pacemakers, implantable cardiac defibrillators, cardiac resynchronization devices and implantable loop recorders. Fellows will also receive training in laser lead extraction, leadless pacemaker implantation, His bundle pacing, and Watchman device implantation.

Trainees will participate in a continuity arrhythmia clinic throughout the year. Upon completion of the fellowship program, fellows will be eligible for a certificate in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology from the American Board of Internal Medicine. All fellows will meet American College of Cardiology COCATS3 requirements for Board Certification.
