The Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship seeks cardiovascular disease fellowship graduates who are pursuing a career in cardiac electrophysiology.
Applicants with the following qualifications are eligible for appointment to accredited fellowship programs:
- M.D. or D.O.
- U.S. citizenship, permanent resident or J-1 visa status.
- Six years of U.S. postgraduate residency training in Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited programs (three years in internal medicine and three years in a cardiology fellowship) by the time of entry into the fellowship program.
How to Apply
All applications for the PGY-7 level should be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service. Applicants will not be selected through the National Resident Matching Program.
The following materials should be included in the application:
- Common application form, including a personal statement and medical school transcript.
- Minimum of three letters of recommendation: one from the program director and two others from the current institution, preferably one from a faculty member in the division of cardiovascular medicine.
- Personal statement.
- Wallet-size color photograph.
- United States Medical Licensing Examination transcripts.
- For foreign medical graduates: Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates, or ECFMG, status report (Note: Foreign medical graduates candidates requiring ECMFG certification will only be invited to interview if they are ECFMG certified.)
Applicants must be U.S. citizens, permanent residents or have an Employment Authorization Document. The program accepts J-1 visas for the two-year clinical fellowship, but the applicant must be extremely well-qualified. J-1 visa applicants may need a special extension to complete their second year of fellowship since this year may represent the eighth year of training in the U.S. for most applicants.
After reviewing application materials, the program will contact qualified applicants via Interview Broker to schedule an interview.
Submit applications to ERAS anytime between July and August. The program will conduct interviews in September and early October.
Interviews for the 2022-2023 year will be virtual. Interviewees will receive information regarding the virtual interview process from the program upon their selection for interview.
