In brief: Pacemaker programing

Pacemakers are usually implanted by cardiologists in a special procedure room and there are often technicians that assist with the implantation.
These individuals have some background in cardiology and cardiac procedures, or electrophysiology. Pacemaker companies usually recruit technicians or nurses with a cardiology background to train for pacemaker programming. It is a very specialized field.
