Purpose and Scope
To provide an opportunity for networking and contribute to developing clinical experience in the field of Arrhythmias and Cardiac Pacing (CP) in a chosen centre for Cardiac Electrophysiology (EP) and Devices. The goal of this programme is also to give the participants some insight on the workflow of different EP centres, allowing to watch state-of-the-art techniques, strategies, clinical and procedural standards thanks to a one to two weeks hands-off training with an expert electrophysiologist. Lastly, this programme can act as an introduction and first experience for Young EPs planning on a longer future visit in the chosen centre.
EP Insight has been designed for physicians with some experience in the field of cardiology and interventional electrophysiology. The visiting Young EP will gain theoretical knowledge in different clinical and interventional settings, including EP/CP techniques and procedures such as, all hands-off:
- Conventional electrophysiology as well as advanced ablation strategies for the treatment of complex atrial and ventricular arrhythmias (including 3D mapping methods and image integration);
- Basic permanent pacing as well as complex CRT procedures;
lead extraction, leadless pacemakers and S-ICD implantations ;
as well as:
- Cardiovascular research and scientific networking;
- Different academic models.
