"This award was crucial in my career and basically cemented my desire to become an electrophysiologist who wants to practice EP with a serious research lab to do translational research."
Rishi Arora, MD
"[This award] helped me bring in $10 million — not only to my lab and my research, but to the biomedical research industry. With that money, I paid salaries for young people that I supported until they got their fellowships."
Mario Delmar, MD, PhD, FHRS
The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) publishes an annual, detailed listing of available Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology (CCEP) fellowship programs in the United States, including contact information for program directors.
The Heart Rhythm Foundation is dedicated to keeping the legacy of Seymour Furman, MD, FHRS, alive with The Furman Fund. Each year, the Furman Fund will award three travel scholarships for up-and-coming cardiology scholars to attend the Heart Rhythm Society's Annual Scientific Sessions through The Furman Fund Travel Scholarship.
