Electrophysiology Fellows Summit Overview


Attendance is Complimentary

The Electrophysiology Fellows Summit has transitioned to a live online broadcast, December 11-12, 2020, which features leading thought leaders who provide insight into essential fundamentals and treatment technology for the management of cardiac arrhythmias through an interactive forum that enables opportunities to learn and engage with leaders in the field of electrophysiology.

Mission

The mission of the Electrophysiology Fellows Summit is to offer an interactive forum that educates and trains through high quality lectures, case presentations, panel discussions with Q&A sessions, and virtual heart dissection demonstrations with thorough reviews.

Who Should Attend?

The Virtual Summit is designed for trainees currently in (or entering) electrophysiology and cardiology fellowship programs. Additionally, current practicing electrophysiologists, cardiologists, nurses, physician assistants, and other associated allied healthcare professionals and physicians who have a clinical interest in the management of cardiac arrhythmias will find this program a beneficial and comprehensive review.

Live Broadcast Across Multiple Platforms

The live broadcast will be accessible through multiple broadcast platforms which are available to attendees that enable optimal viewing experiences across various devices, including the live broadcast transmission through the Summit’s website or Virtual EP Fellows mobile and integrated web app. In addition to access to the live broadcast stream, broadcast replays, and Virtual EP Fellows ON-DEMAND, the mobile and integrated web app offer a level of expanded engagement and networking opportunities.

Highlights

Heart Dissection Demonstrations and Reviews

Comprehensive reviews of cardiac anatomy, including virtual heart dissection demonstrations, with a special focus on right and left atrium, midline and annular structures, ventricles, and strategies to prevent collateral damage to critical structures during electrophysiologic interventions. Dissection demonstrations are complemented with assessments of important approaches to manage challenging cardiac arrhythmias.

Didactic Lectures/Case Reviews/Discussions

Core to the Electrophysiology Fellows Summit is comprehensive reviews, discussions, and case-based education from the experts, who explain their experiences on essential fundamentals, and treatment technology for the management of complex arrhythmias. Lectures, Case Reviews, and Discussions focus on fundamentals of mapping and catheter ablation, and biophysics of ablation.  

Interactive Panel Discussions

Panel discussions, complemented with Q&A sessions, feature global leaders in the field who draw upon their clinical practice and research experience during these interactive and conversational-based forums.

Attendee Engagement

Attendees are encouraged to actively engage with faculty throughout the duration of the Summit by submitting questions and participating in real-time polls and surveys that evaluate clinical decision-making strategies, current practice/treatment habits, and experiences.

Fellows and Residents Case Competition

The Case Competition enables Fellows and Residents to share their clinical experiences and knowledge with colleagues and leading experts, and gain international recognition.

Fellows and Residents are invited to submit an interesting case that focuses on a complex procedure, management of a complication, or advanced/novel techniques in the treatment of a complex arrhythmia. Cases will be reviewed by The Program Committee who will select the Best 3 Cases for presentation during the Summit

The authors of the Top 3 Cases will be invited to present their work during the Case Competition Session on Saturday, December 12, 2020 from 11:35 AM – 12:35 PM EDT, which includes participation within the corresponding panel discussions with the expert panel. The overall winner of the competition, who is announced at the session’s conclusion, will receive a $1,000 prize and a plaque to commemorate their accomplishment.

The 3 finalists will have their case study published within the double-blind peer-reviewed publication, The Journal of Innovations in Cardiac Rhythm Management , and Indexed in PubMed Central.

Virtual Case Theater Session

Virtual Case Theater Session on Friday, December 11, 2020 will feature special industry supported case presentations that occur through the live broadcast. The Session features illustrative case reports from leading physicians who review advancements in techniques and technologies that are focused on the monitoring, diagnosis, and/or treatment of a complex arrhythmia. Case Theater presentations are complemented with Q&A sessions that enable attendees to engage faculty

E-Satellite Symposium
A New Horizon to Optimize AF Outcomes: Emerging Data & Techniques in Hybrid Ablation

The accredited E-Satellite Symposium will examine emerging data and techniques in hybrid ablation to optimize AF outcomes, including CONVERGE IDE trial results and application of data into real-world clinical practice, as well as how to address the LAA by combining Convergent ablation with LAA closure. Additionally, as Convergent ablation is a novel hybrid technique that combines endocardial RF ablation and minimally invasive epicardial surgical ablation, the experts will explore the crucial roles of electrophysiologists and surgeons not only in performing the procedure but also as the coordinators and developers of this multidisciplinary service.
