The Advanced Training Statement on clinical cardiac electrophysiology (CCEP) addresses the added competencies required of sub-subspecialists who focus on diagnosis and management of patients with cardiac arrhythmias and conduction disturbances at a high level of skill. The document complements the basic training in cardiac electrophysiology (EP) required of all trainees during the standard 3-year cardiovascular fellowship. The training requirements and clinical competencies designated in the Advanced Training Statement focus on the core competencies reasonably expected of all clinical cardiac electrophysiologists and identify aspects that go beyond the core expectations.
