Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship

Our fellows train within four busy electrophysiology (EP) labs – one of which is biplane – where more than 1,200 procedures are performed each year.

The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship at Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

As a tertiary referral center located in downtown Dallas, our primary training facility provides fellows experience in a broad range of pathology with a very diverse population base. Fellows develop expertise in the diagnosis and management of arrhythmia disorders, such as invasive and noninvasive testing, and all therapeutic modalities including medical management, device implantation and follow-up and catheter ablation.

Our program boasts a 100 percent board pass rate and a student-faculty ratio of 1:4.

We accept one fellow every other academic year.


Fellows treat arrhythmia patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings to observe, diagnose, manage and judge the effectiveness of treatments for these patients. Fellows are given the opportunity to assume continuing and increasing responsibility for both acutely and chronically ill patients to learn the natural history of a wide variety of cardiac arrhythmias and how to treat them.

Moreover, each fellow spends a half day each week in one of the arrhythmia outpatient clinics. The fellows rotate among each of the EP faculty clinics as well as the outpatient device clinic, thus affording trainees the opportunity to observe and manage patients longitudinally and to gain experience with device follow-up and management. 

In addition to didactics, fellows have worked with pharmaceutical companies serving as teachers in their ACC-sponsored programs-for-education initiatives.

Fellows are trained on advanced procedures, including:

  • Cryoballoon ablation for atrial fibrillation
  • Ischemic VT ablations using CARTO and ESI mapping systems
  • Laser lead extraction of devices
  • Left atrial appendage closure device

Throughout training, fellows are also given increasing responsibility in invasive and non-invasive procedures in the EP laboratory. These procedures include:

  • Diagnostic EP studies
  • Arrhythmia mapping
  • Catheter ablation for supraventricular tachycardias, ventricular tachycardias and pacemaker
  • ICD
  • Cardiac resynchronization therapy device implantations
  • Cardioversions
  • Tilt table tests

  • EKG Conference
  • Cardiology Grand Rounds
  • Cardiology Echocardiography Conference
  • Cardiology Catheterization Conference
  • Cardiology Section or M&M Meeting
  • Internal Medicine Grand Rounds

Fellows are expected to initiate a research project pertaining to clinical or basic electrophysiology within the first month. During this time, one half day per week will be allotted for research.

A meaningful experience will include discussion and formulation of hypothesis and study design. Subsequent rotations will allow performance of the study and data acquisition, data analysis, and preparation of a study summary in abstract and/or manuscript form, which will be presented locally and submitted for peer review and publication.
