HRS Travel Scholarships

About the Scholarships

HRS strives to facilitate the participation of early-career electrophysiologists and fellow heart rhythm professionals in the activities of the global EP community, particularly the Society's annual meeting. To this end, HRS developed HRS Travel Scholarships to:

  • Introduce healthcare professionals who have expressed an interest in electrophysiology to the multiple facets of the electrophysiology specialty
  • Promote and sustain collaborative relationships between early-career professionals and experienced electrophysiology professionals
  • Provide opportunities for the mentoring of clinicians, scientists, and healthcare professionals early in their training

HRS is pleased to offer HRS Travel Scholarships again for Heart Rhythm 2023, which include complimentary registration and $1,500 to help cover travel costs.
