Brown Clinical Electrophysiology Fellowship is a 2-year ACGME accredited fellowship. We have 2 fellowship spots; one per year. We have one of the highest device and ablation volumes in the Northeast region as Rhode Island Hospital is the only tertiary care center in the state of Rhode Island. Fellows will have exposure to a wide range of pathologies. We understand that electrophysiology is a very technical/hands-on field and it is our goal to provide fellows with rigorous yet un-diluted quality training experience.

Director, Electrophysiology Fellowship Program
We have two training campuses; the Rhode Island Hospital and the Miriam Hospital. Fellows may rotate through both campuses. Rhode Island Hospital has two dedicated EP labs (biplane fluoroscopy and equipped with the latest mapping software system), a hybrid OR lab with EP capability, and an updated device lab shared with cath. The Miriam hospital has a dedicated EP lab for devices and ablations. We have a total of 6 electrophysiology attendings who work closely with fellows. There are dedicated APPs (PAs and NPs) who help facilitate with inpatient and outpatient care. We do about 300 + ablations and 600 + devices per year. Fellows should expect to achieve the minimal requirements for common procedures (PPM, ICD, CRT, SVT, AF/AFL, VT/PVC) within the first year of training. Fellows will have opportunities to participate in procedures such as leadless pacemaker implantation, His-bundle pacing, left atrial appendage occlusion device implantation, lead/device extraction, convergent procedure, and epicardial access/ablation.
The focus of the EP fellowship to allow fellows to gain independence through rigorous training. EP fellows are expected to scrub into most cases. Additionally, EP fellows will occasionally provide support for EP Consults. Other educational requirements include…
