Summary of Opportunity
The Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM) is seeking qualified candidates to join its growing Cardiac Electrophysiology program within the Department of Medicine, Section of Cardiology. The scope of clinical service will include but is not limited to complex ablations including VT and atrial fibrillation ablation, as well as device implantation. Qualified candidates must be ABIM certified in IM, cardiology, fellowship trained in cardiac electrophysiology and in possession of or eligible to receive an unrestricted PA State Medical License. The Temple Cardiology Section offers candidates a uniquely supportive practice environment with an emphasis on quality patient care, research, teaching, individual career development, and collegiality among faculty members. Rank and compensation commensurate with experience.
The electrophysiologists at Temple have decades of experience diagnosing and treating heart rhythm disorders. We perform routine and complex electrophysiology procedures with the help of some of the newest technologies, often improving quality of life for patients and reducing their risk of heart failure, stroke, or other serious issues. With one of the largest electrophysiology (EP) facilities in Pennsylvania, our EP specialists can perform sophisticated procedures and studies, including cardiac electrical mapping, 3D diagnostics, intracardiac echocardiography, tilt table testing and wireless monitoring, to help diagnose elusive, rare, or complex arrhythmias. We then offer a variety of therapies, from counseling and medication management to interventional procedures, to help patients manage these disorders. To make sure we stay on the leading edge of treatment and diagnosis, Temple’s electrophysiologists participate in multi-center clinical trials and constantly investigate new technology and treatment options. We also collaborate with our cardiovascular surgery colleagues on advanced procedures like MAZE for complex arrhythmias.
Temple Heart & Vascular Institute (THVI)
The THVI is a physician led, patient focused institute built upon Temple Health’s excellent long-term reputation for heart and vascular clinical care, research and education. At the core of THVI is an integrated approach that encourages collaboration between care providers in order to improve patient experience, outcomes, and value across the spectrum of prevention, diagnosis, intervention, and rehabilitation of cardiovascular disease. THVI continues to build upon the strengths inherent in an institute model while maintaining the advantages conferred as an academic and research healthcare entity.
Temple Health, one of Philadelphia's leading academic medical centers, is home to more than 1,000 physicians and scientists who share the mission of bringing innovative treatments to patients.
Giving our patients access to some of the world's most advanced therapies — and helping them achieve outcomes once thought impossible — is the driving force for all our clinical care, research, and medical education.
