SCTIMST, an institute of national importance under Ministry of science and technology is offering post-doctoral fellowship program in EP since 2002. The electrophysiology programme in the department undertakes over 200 pacemaker implants and 250 electrophysiological studies supplemented by radiofrequency ablation each year. This laboratory provides catheter-guided electrophysiology testing and radiofrequency ablation to patients with various cardiac rhythm disorders like atrioventricular re-entry (AVRT), atrioventricular nodal re-entry (AVNRT), atrial tachycardia, atrial flutters, atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardias. Our Electrophysiology division is provided with dedicated Cardiac electrophysiology laboratory with state-of-the art 240-channel intracardiac ECG monitoring system (BARD-Pro-EP system) and the 3D Electroanatomic mapping system (EnSite Velocity and CARTO system).
The training programme is for one year. Eligible candidates are those who have completed DM or DNB cardiology. There is one seat every year. The salary scale is as per the centre government scale. The interview is in December with the date of joining on 1st January. Fellows have to give their research proposal while applying for the course and they have to finish the research and submit it before the course completion.
