Subspecialty fellowships


The Division of Cardiology at The Mt. Sinai St. Luke's and Roosevelt Hospitals offers an ACGME-accredited Fellowship in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology. The hospital serves a large and growing community consisting of a culturally diverse patient population, drawn not only from the West Side of New York City but also from the greater metropolitan region.

The goals of the Fellowship are to train fellows who can practice outstanding consultative Electrophysiology and perform all types of Electrophysiology procedures. Towards this end, ample time is available for out-patient and in-patient consultations as well as longitudinal follow-up of patients with an implanted device in our two outpatient Device Centers. Procedural expertise is developed within two electrophysiology laboratories equipped with state of the art equipment. This includes biplane fluoroscopy, contact and non-contact three-dimensional mapping systems, a full-time intra-cardiac echocardiography machine, a cryo-ablation and open-irrigated ablation systems, and a Laser lead extraction system. The program is especially well known for its skills in ablation of atrial fibrillation, cardiac resynchronization therapy and lead extractions.

Fellows are encouraged to engage in clinical research. Areas of research interest in our laboratory include the following: the short and long-term outcomes following pulmonary vein isolation in patients with atrial fibrillation, the management of atrial fibrillation in patients with congestive heart failure, the short and long-term outcomes of patients admitted with unexplained syncope, and the use of remote monitoring technologies in patients with atrial arrhythmias. In addition, at all times, the Electrophysiology section participates in numerous multi-center clinical ablation and device trials. Fellows are expected to present their findings at national meetings and publish their findings in high impact, peer-reviewed, journals.

Finally, a wide variety of clinical conferences are available throughout the week to supplement the fellows' training. These include ECG conference, a weekly Electrophysiology meeting, Cardiology Grand Rounds, journal club, Morbidity and Mortality conference, and a formalized Board Review program. Graduates of the program are universally Board Certified and recognized amongst their peers for delivering outstanding Electrophysiology care within their practice communities.
