Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship 

Program Director: Matthew Zipse, MD

There is an active invasive cardiac electrophysiology laboratory staffed by Drs. Wendy Tzou (Director, EP Section), Matthew Zipse, Ryan Aleong, Ryan Borne, Michael Rosenberg, and Alexis Tumolo.  Training sites, in addition to the University of Colorado Hospital, also include the Denver VA (staffed by Drs. Paul Varosy and Amneet Sandhu) and our county hospital, Denver Health Medical Center (staffed by Drs. Jose Sanchez and Jason West).  EP fellows are exposed to the clinical and educational endeavors of the Electrophysiology service in order to become competent to perform as an independent clinical electro physiologist. They become familiar with and competent in all aspects of the evaluation of patients with wide range of situations related to arrhythmias. The general day-to-day activities include attending a daily patient work rounds meeting to include the EP faculty, nursing staff, and rotating cardiology fellow on service to discuss the cases and patients for that day and the next. During the diagnostic portions of the study, all fellows are present in order to learn the techniques and decision-making tactics needed before proceeding with the appropriate intervention. Fellows have a continuous outpatient experience to include new outpatient consultations, patient follow-ups, and all types of defibrillator and pacemaker follow-ups.
