The Electrophysiology (EP) fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital is a 12-18 month program of intense exposure to arrhythmia management with an emphasis on invasive procedures. The curriculum is designed to prepare graduates for a career in clinical EP in an academic setting. The patient population spans the spectrum from fetal life to adults with congenital heart disease. Trainees will be involved in all aspects of invasive EP, including catheter ablation, arrhythmia surgery, and pacemaker / ICD procedures. There is an expectation that fellows will also participate in clinical research with a first-author paper at completion of their training. The EP division at Boston Children’s is the largest of its kind, with a patient volume that has supported the training of over 45 pediatric electrophysiologists since the 1980s. The program satisfies all requirements of the PACES / HRS guidelines for training in pediatric electrophysiology (see Walsh et al. Heart Rhythm. 2013;10:775-81).
Funding is available to support one trainee per year, though we often can accommodate two or more fellows per year if we can secure salary support from grants or other sources. Because training slots are so limited, the application process should begin early (generally 18 months prior to expected start date). Inquiries should be directed to Dr. Edward Walsh, Division Chief (Ed.Walsh@CARDIO.CHBOSTON.ORG) or Dr. Dominic Abrams, EP fellowship coordinator (Dominic.Abrams@cardio.chboston.org).
