How I fell in love with electrophysiology: During my residency training, I was introduced to pacemaker and defibrillator therapy. The way it saves lives fascinated me, and I fell in love with the field of electrophysiology. After that, I was working with many excellent electrophysiologists. Observing how they interacted with patients and provided effective treatment confirmed that electrophysiology is the field for me.
