The Heart Rhythm Society's post-doctoral fellowships in cardiac electrophysiology encourage research training for individuals interested in basic or clinical research related to heart rhythm issues.
Each year, the Heart Rhythm Society awards full-year Research Fellowships to individuals interested in clinical and basic research relating to the latest advances in electrophysiology. These Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships include a one-year stipend of $50,000, complimentary membership to the Society and complimentary registration to the Heart Rhythm Society's Annual Scientific Sessions.

Heart failure (HF), previously called congestive heart failure, is a serious condition most commonly caused by weak pumping of the heart muscle. Poor heart pumping function can cause fatigue, leg swelling, and difficulty breathing, particularly with exertion. Lifestyle changes, medication, pacemakers, defibrillators and even open heart surgery can be used to treat heart failure.
Heart block is an abnormal heart rhythm where the heart beats too slowly (bradycardia). In this condition, the electrical signals that tell the heart to contract are partially or totally blocked between the upper chambers (atria) and the lower chambers (ventricles). For this reason, it is also called atrioventricular block (AV block).
Some abnormal heart rhythms can happen without the person knowing it, while some may cause the feeling of the heart “racing,” lightheadedness, or dizziness. At some point in life, many adults have had short-lived heart rhythm changes that are not serious.
