REF. 317-TD-18-262We are delighted to be able to offer an opportunity for a highly motivated, ambitious individual to join our well integrated team.
The purpose of this 12-month Fellowship in Cardiac Electrophysiology is to provide extensive training in advanced cardiac rhythm management at Freeman Hospital, one of the largest interventional electrophysiology centres in the UK. The Fellowship will involve training in catheter ablation, including the use of a range of 3-dimensional mapping systems and other technologies, and complex device implantation, in addition to in-patient and out-patient assessment of patients presenting with electrical cardiac issues.
Role of the EP Fellow
The appointee will participate extensively under the supervision of a Consultant Electrophysiologist in interventional electrophysiology procedures, with some additional exposure to cardiac device implantation, including complex devices. In the past 12 months, the following numbers of ablation procedures were performed:
SVT/typical flutter: 320
Atrial fibrillation: 350
Atrial tachycardia/atypical flutter: 60
Ventricular tachycardia/PVCs: 65
There is therefore a high proportion of complex arrhythmia cases, most of which involve use of 3D mapping systems.
The appointee will be expected to participate in the pre- and post-procedural care of patients they have performed procedures upon.
There are a number of arrhythmia-related studies on-going within the department, originating both from within and external to the unit, and the post will involve taking an active role in contributing to patient recruitment and data collection. It would be expected that the appointee will have opportunities to submit data for presentation at national/international conferences.
The EP Fellow will also be expected to contribute to the weekly EP MDT meeting, which involves education for trainees and physiologists, and discussion of the management of complex cases. They may also wish to attend the weekly Adult Congenital Heart Disease/Arrhythmia MDT meeting. There is also a monthly evening EP Journal Club which the appointee will be welcome to attend. The appointee will be encouraged to study for IBHRE or EHRA accreditation during their post if not already held.
