On behalf of the Editor-in-Chief, and esteemed editorial board; we are pleased to introduce a new section, entitled “Fellows Innovations”. This new section will serve as a forum which enables fellows to share original research; unique and challenging case reviews, as well as perspectives on a range of approaches and technologies used for mapping and ablative therapy, device implantation, lead extraction, pharmacological therapy, and more.

I am honored to have accepted the Editors position for this exciting and important new section. “Fellows Innovations” offers excellent opportunities for fellows to contribute manuscripts that showcase their research projects, from basic/translational to clinical research, as well technical procedural proficiency. This section will unquestionably draw talented contributors from around the world.

As I reflect back on my fellowship experience, what I enjoyed most was the opportunity to interact with my peers from around the country. This is an opportunity to do just that.

In coming issues, we will announce the establishment of “Year End” awards, which will recognize select fellows whose manuscripts are nominated as the Manuscripts of the Year, by a group of independent Editorial Board Members.

I am thrilled to serve in this new position and look forward to connecting with you either online or at one of our upcoming Fellows meetings.
