The field of Electrophysiology is rapidly changing with new medication, technology and interventions being developed at a fast pace. The medication, technology and interventions utilized in cardiac electrophysiology impact a broad community of patients managed by a diverse group of healthcare providers from both the inpatient and out-patient settings.  Discussions will address a number of concerns for cardiac patients including the structure of the cardiac conduction system, sudden cardiac death, cardiac syncope, permanent pacing, inherited arrhythmia syndrome, indications for anticoagulation, etc.  The educational content will provide knowledge on history of the development of diagnostic and treatment options for electrophysiology ranging from pharmaceuticals, devices and other innovations.
