Abstract

NASPE proposes and supports the concept of Level I, II, and III training for implantation and management of CIEDs. Track I training will properly train physicians for the prescription of pacemakers and the monitoring of CIED patients, and track II training will properly prepare physicians for the implantation of CIEDs. Regardless of specialty (cardiologist or surgeon) or training venue (cardiac pacing fellowship, cardiac electrophysiology and pacing fellowship, sabbatical, or mentor-sponsored training), it is recommended that these minimum standards be required for hospital credentialing. Level III applies to requirements for the fully trained electrophysiologist. As CIED implantation and management continue to become more complex, it is crucial that those involved in these clinical functions are adequately trained.
