The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology (CCEP) Fellowship Program at Tufts Medical Center in Boston is an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited program affiliated with Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM). This one-year advanced cardiology fellowship program has a more than 25-year history of training highly qualified cardiovascular fellows in a challenging and competitive setting.
During their time at Tufts MC, fellows are exposed to a wide range of inpatient and outpatient electrophysiology patients, including the evaluation and management of complex cardiac rhythm disturbances, evaluation and implantation of cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) and catheter ablations.
The advanced fellowship program prepares trainees for careers in academic medicine or private practice with heavy emphasis on research and teaching. CCEP fellows are expected to be involved in teaching house staff, medical students and cardiology fellows in addition to actively engaging in the intramural educational curriculum.
Upon completion of the Electrophysiology Fellowship, each of our fellows will have acquired the expertise needed to be a consultant in clinical cardiac electrophysiology. The curriculum ensures that the fellows achieve the knowledge, skills and practical experience that are required to become an ABIM certified clinical cardiac electrophysiologist.
Throughout their time in our program, fellows are given increasing responsibility for patient care and procedures. The program provides supervised procedural experience to the fellow so that he/she can gain the expertise required of a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist. The fellow will also:
Through very close coordination, the CCEP fellows are expected to attend the core competence lectures given to the general cardiology fellows. These include lectures in risk management, ethics, biostatistics, combined cardiology/cardiothoracic conferences and morbidity mortality conferences.
Fellows are expected to become involved in research during their advanced CCEP training. They are exposed to a wide range of research opportunities, including basic science, translational and clinical research. Most fellows also become involved in ongoing EP clinical trials and will have the opportunity to present at local and national meetings. They will also have the opportunity to apply for publication of manuscripts in peer review journals.
The Molecular Cardiology Research Institute and the Division of Cardiology offer a variety of research areas related to heart failure and ventricular function. Fellows work closely with mentors to design a curriculum and research program that is both educational and productive.
A full range of inpatient, outpatient, clinical and research laboratory facilities are available to the CCEP fellows at Tufts MC. Fellows work with high quality, cutting-edge equipment. In addition, a complete medical library is available at Tufts University School of Medicine.
CCEP fellows have a centrally-located, dedicated, quiet workspace equipped with desks, computers and a lounge area. Fellows also have access to the cardiology conference spaces, including the Modestino Cricitiello Library and the Herbert J. Levine Conference Room.
Our outstanding faculty members are among the nation’s leaders in electrophysiology bringing the latest advances in cardiovascular diagnosis and care into clinical practice. The Tufts MC Clinical Cardiac EP faculty is composed of five full-time academic staff at Tufts University School of Medicine and dedicated to teaching fellows.
