EP Academy

Our Electrophysiology curriculum is separated into three different modules: EP Foundation, EP Principles and EP Technology – Pacing. When designing the curriculum, we used the RCES exam matrix as a guideline, so that when the learner has completed all the modules he or she will be fully prepared to take the RCES credentialing exam. With almost 40 chapters and 75 online lectures (over 14 hours of content), the curriculum is very comprehensive. Additionally, each chapter has review questions designed to simulate real RCES questions. Below are some sample topics for each course.

  • Digital training for self-study and RCES exam preparation accessible from mobile platforms
  • 75 online lectures (over 14 hours of content) paired with reading assignments
  • Over 600 comprehensive review questions devised from the RCES exam matrix guidelines

 

EP FoundationOur curriculum starts with the basics of anatomy and the conduction system, designed to give the beginning learner the perspective of physiology and an understanding of how arrhythmias affect the circulatory system. We progress to fundamentals of action potential, mechanisms of activation and activation sequences before moving to catheter positioning and ECG / EGM layout.

EP PrinciplesOnce the foundation is set, we move to more advanced subjects such as EGM rhythm recognition and baseline measurements. From there we do a deep dive into both atrial and ventricular arrhythmias and finally have advanced subjects such as stimulation protocols and radio-frequency ablation.

EP PacingOur third and final course covers pacemaking topics and applications such as lead technology overviews, capture, sensing and threshold testing and advanced laser lead extraction.
