They trust the doctor for his willingness to listen to their concerns and put together teams of specialists to treat all of their health needs While working on his fellowship, Dr. Bump also completed specialized training in clinical cardiac electrophysiology under Dr. Kenneth Rosen. Following his training, he joined the faculty at the University of Chicago where he established its clinical electrophysiology program and joined Dr. Robert Arzbaecher as the co-investigator of NIH-funded research into device-based detection and treatment of arrhythmias. Together with Dr. A.
