Frank may be fundamentally one of the greatest mentors in electrophysiology. This is demonstrated by the legacy of academicians who have trained under him and continue to have an impact in this field. His efforts to mentor future leaders in EP will have an impact for generations in the field and I'm honored to have had the opportunity to call him a mentor and a role model.

As a mentor, Frank Marchlinski truly shared his passion for electrophysiology not only via formal conferences, but also by allowing fellows-in-training to perform painstaking mapping procedures for complex arrhythmia cases referred for ablation. These hands-on experiences have given his graduates tremendous confidence in their post graduate careers. I remain grateful for the opportunities and expertise Frank provided.

Frank's vision and leadership have impacted so many careers. I will be always grateful for the role he has played in my personal and professional development. There is a steadily growing group of early and mid-career Canadian electrophysiologists who all look fondly back at the UPenn fellowship and are proud to be associated with the program that Frank leads. Thank you, Frank!

For me it was a unique opportunity and honor to spend more than a year as a clinical research fellow at the U-Penn EP labs working under the leadership of Francis Marchlinski. His immense knowledge as well as his professional attitude fundamentally influenced my academic career in cardiac electrophysiology and greatly contributed to my personal professional development for my life. His exemplary conduct as a great person both in relation with colleagues and patients as well as a leader made an everlasting impact on me . He has been a major inspiration for me to transfer and implement his manner of thinking in EP in Europe and more particularly in Hungary. It is in that spirit that I have been trying to instruct and inspire my own colleagues.
