2011 HRS Policy Statement: Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology (CCEP) Fellowship Curriculum

Endorsed by the Heart Rhythm Society in May 2011; published in the August 2011 edition of HeartRhythm Journal.

August 2011 (Update) — A fellowship curriculum is indispensable in the training of a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist. A CCEP curriculum was first published in 2001 and served as the basis for education in many fellowship programs. Over the last decade, cardiac electrophysiology continued to grow, evolve, and mature, which necessitated an update.


The current update focuses on what a practicing electrophysiologist will need in the care of patients. It is not meant to be a mandatory educational requirement or to supplant American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) or Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) requirements.
