Event info



  • U.S. fellows-in-training preparing for initial certification
  • U.S. electrophysiologists looking to reinforce their foundational knowledge
  • International electrophysiologists and cardiologists seeking to assess their knowledge against U.S. standards, extend their knowledge base beyond what is available in their region of the world, or utilize as a teaching tool
  • Directors of EP labs


  • Basic cardiac and intracardiac electrophysiology
  • Pharmacology of antiarrhythmic drugs
  • Noninvasive testing for arrhythmias
  • Atrial and other supraventricular tachycardias
  • Catheter ablation
  • Implantable cardioverter defibrillators
  • Cardiac pacing
  • Intracardiac ultrasound in EP
  • Transseptal catheterization techniques 
  • Pericardial access for epicardial mapping and ablation
  • Complications of EP procedures - avoidance and management


This course is a virtual blended learning activity featuring recorded didactic lectures and case-based workshops, augmented by live interactive learning sessions with course directors and faculty for in-depth coverage of the essential EP curriculum.


Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the current guidelines related to evaluation and management of patients with cardiac rhythm disturbances
  • Describe the role of electrophysiologic testing in managing patients with bradyarrhythmias and tachyarrhythmias
  • Identify the advantages and limitations of diagnostic electrophysiologic methods
  • Identify the role of pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic therapies for the treatment of arrhythmias
  • Recognize the basic electrophysiology and genetics of inherited conditions associated with cardiac arrhythmias
  • Recognize clinical, electrocardiographic, and electrophysiologic characteristics of specific cardiac arrhythmia syndromes
  • Interpret complex electrophysiologic and electrocardiographic tracings
  • Interpret stored electrograms from pacemakers and ICDs


The Heart Rhythm Society is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 45 CME credits and 45 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
