Core Cardiovascular Training Statement (COCATS)
COCATS outlines recommended training requirements for adult cardiovascular medicine fellowship programs.
Each COCATS Task Force Report covers a specific field of competency in cardiovascular disease, includes curricular content (milestones) within each domain, and lists potential evaluation tools.
COCATS 4 Task Force 11: Arrhythmia Diagnosis and Management, Cardiac Pacing, and Electrophysiology

Advanced Training Statement (2015)
This Advanced Training Statement addresses the added competencies required of sub subspecialists in CCEP for the diagnosis and management of patients with cardiac arrhythmias and conduction disturbances at a high level of skill. An update is currently in progress.
CVD to CCEP Competency-Based Alternative Training Pathway
ACGME recently approved a pilot program for the Cardiovascular Disease and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Competency-Based Alternative Training Pathway. The overarching goal of this pathway is to introduce a tailored, competency-based cardiovascular disease (CVD) curriculum to select trainees, fostering early career focus in clinical cardiac electrophysiology (CCEP) during the third year of CVD training. This will result in the completion of training in both specialties in four years (rather than five years as currently required). Twenty pilot programs have been selected and will enroll fellows in 2023.
