Heart Rhythm Society : Core Concepts in EP and Board Prep 2021

Core Concepts in EP and Board Prep has evolved from the Society’s highly regarded Board Review Course and is designed to serve as an indispensible tool for preparing for the CCEP Exam. It also ensures a fundamentally sound EP knowledge base.

This course features didactic lectures and case-based workshops presented by expert faculty and course directors for in-depth coverage of the essential EP curriculum. It is bundled with a 100-question, multiple choice Self-Assessment Exam available immediately upon purchase.
