After qualifying in Internal Medicine and Cardiology at Sanatorio Mitre, Buenos Aires (1995), he completed a Clinical Fellowship in Cardiac Electrophysiology at the same institution under the supervision of Dr. Claudio Muratore.
He completed his Clinical Fellowship (1997) and joined the Arrhythmia Service until 2002 when he immigrated to Spain to join the Arrhythmia Service at the Fundacion Jimenez Diaz; working as a Research Fellow in the Animal Lab under the supervision of Dr. Jeronimo Farre. For his work in this lab, he was awarded with the 3rd Chinchona Award (Sponsored by 3M Foundation). During his stay in Madrid, Spain, he received a grant (as PI) from MAPFRE MEDICINA Foundation (Madrid, Spain). (Ultrasonic Analysis of Radiofrequency Lesion of the Pulmonary Venous Wall through Three-dimensional Intravascular Echography: Therapeutical Implications for Atrial Fibrillation Ablation).
Dr. Baranchuk was appointed as a Clinical Fellow in Electrophysiology at McMaster University in September 2003, under the supervision of Drs. Carlos Morillo and Stuart Connolly. In 2004, he won the 1st Prize at the Fellows Forum, “5th Annual EP Fellows Course” (Sponsored by Medtronic) held in Montebello.
