2015 ACC/AHA/HRS Advanced Training Statement on Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology (A Revision of the ACC/AHA 2006 Update of the Clinical Competence Statement on Invasive Electrophysiology Studies, Catheter Ablation, and Cardioversion)
September 18, 2015—This Advanced Training Statement addresses the added competencies required of subsubspecialists in CCEP for diagnosis and management of patients with cardiac arrhythmias and conduction disturbances at a high level of skill. It is intended to complement the basic training in cardiac electrophysiology required of all trainees during the standard 3-year cardiovascular fellowship.
The training requirements and designated clinical competencies in this report focus on the core competencies reasonably expected of all clinical cardiac electrophysiologists. It also identifies some aspects of CCEP that go beyond the core expectations, and may be achieved by some clinical cardiac electrophysiologists, based on career focus, either during formal CCEP fellowship training or subsequently.
