Joe has worked with some of the best health systems, universities, companies and medical centers in the country. Earning a degree in medical radiography (RT) in the late 1990's, he began working in Cardiac Cath labs to start his professional career.
In the mid-2000’s he earned a degree in Nursing (RN), & cardiovascular & EP credentials. In 2004, Joe founded a regional staffing & consulting business that specialized in cardiovascular services, where he merged & operated his businesses into franchise agreements with national companies. In 2010, he co-founded one of the 1st formal EP academic training programs at Loma Linda University, where he served as clinical coordinator & adjunct teaching faculty. Joe now works with an ‘education-technology’ company & collaborates with healthcare professionals to create novel blends of solutions that intersect education & technology.
EP for the Allied Health Professional is a 4 day program that will give Allied Professionals the fundamentals/foundation of Electrophysiology. The course will include the following content: The Cardiac Conduction System, EP Principles, Tachycardia Mechanisms, Action Potential, Ion Channels, Entrainment, Differential Pacing Maneuvers, Atrial Fib, Cardiac Mapping, Physics of Ablation, HIS, Selective HIS Bachmann’s Bundle Pacing, Reentrant Tachycardias: Bypass Tracts, AVNRT, Atrial Flutter, A-Fib, VT, EP IEGM’s. Biosense Webster and Abbott will conduct training on their mapping systems as well as review case studies. This program is geared toward anyone who would like to gain knowledge in the EP space.
Tuition Cost: The cost of the course is $1,250.00 which includes a textbook. Attendees are responsible for housing, meals and transportation.
