There is a fellowship opportunity at Toronto General Hospital to start January 2014. It offers a comprehensive 2-3 year clinical fellowship covering the following areas:

– Complex ablation including AF, VT, atypical atrial flutter in patients with congenital heart disease

– Simple catheter ablation including WPW, AT, AVNRT

– Device implants (PPM, ICD, BiV devices)

– Ambulatory EP care (inherited arrhythmia assessment, risk stratification, arrhythmia evaluation, etc).

– Inpatient EP consultation care

There are 4-5 fellows in the program who rotate through the EP lab, device implant room, EP consultation service, and research/ambulatory as well as CRT. We do emphasise academic EP with structured rounds covering core topics in EP and ECG/EGM interpretation, and fellows participating in research projects. Our research focus includes ventricular arrhythmia mechanisms and risk evaluation as well as novel techniques in catheter ablation.
