The Ventricular Tachycardia (VT) module is designed for physicians who are interested in developing a program to approach VT ablations.

The VT module is divided in five different sessions and lasts for over one year. During the module, attendees will have the opportunity to discover various labs throughout Europe and to openly discuss related topics with an enthusiastic and dedicated faculty. Expert faculty members will guide the participants through a journey starting from ECG analysis to complex VT live cases.

"I had the pleasure of attending IEPC modules for VT ablation 2017-18. I was a junior consultant at this point and found the experience invaluable; not only did I meet and learn from world-leading ablators, but I had a chance to get to know colleagues across Europe in a similar situation to me. I still enjoy catching up with them in conferences. The IEPC experiences enhanced my ablation outcomes and increased my confidence. I would thoroughly recommend the IEPC courses to all senior fellows or junior consultants."
