  • “The Electrophysiology Fellowship program at VCU offers a perfect balance between teaching, mentorship, research opportunities and practical procedural experience needed to make you well-rounded as an EP when you finish training. The best part of training here is that all of the above happens in a very healthy, positive and supportive work environment. I can undoubtedly say that coming to VCU has been the best decision I have made as a trainee.”
  • “The EP Fellowship at VCU/MCV was an incredible and unique learning experience. It gave me the opportunity to master the fundamental concepts and skills required to be an interventional electrophysiologist in the current era. The education I received over the course of my two years of training has enabled me to succeed in practice and remain on the cutting edge today, almost a decade later. I am forever indebted to my sattending’s who mentored me during fellowship and beyond.”
