Electrophysiologists (also known as cardiac electrophysiologists) generally work for hospitals and heart institutes, and some also have their own practice or partner with other electrophysiologists. They generally perform special tests on the "electrical systems" of patients' hearts in order to find the location of an arrhythmia (abnormal heartbeat) within the heart. A medical degree and completion of standard cardiology fellowship are required for this position, and electrophysiologists must also be board-certified in cardiovascular disease and/or electrophysiology.
