The UCSF Cardiac Electrophysiology Program is an academic training program located at UCSF Moffitt-Long Hospital. The Cardiac Electrophysiology Program is a one year ACGME - accredited program with an optional non-ACGME year and is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and affiliated with the clinical Cardiology Fellowship at UCSF, which is fully accredited by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).
Starting 2017, we will be a 2 year ACGME clinical fellowship with 3 fellows per year. An additional research year is encouraged but not required. We encourage applications from fellows interested in academic medicine. The clinical years consists of consults, device implantations, electrophysiology study and catheter ablation. We have a very active clinical program with complex catheter ablations including atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia and epicardial mapping and ablation of arrhythmias.
Throughout the program, fellows have the opportunity to be mentored by world-class physician-scientists and clinicians. They can also choose to work with exceptional researchers in the Division of Cardiology as well as the UCSF Cardiovascular Research Institute, the J. David Gladstone Institute, and many other organizations at UCSF.
