EP for the Allied Health Professional is a 5 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 $995.00 which includes a textbook and a tablet loaded with all of the PowerPoint slides.
