Royal Brompton and Harefiel Hospitals, London (United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland)
Dr Katarzyna Malaczynska-Rajpold completed her medical school as well as training in cardiology in Poznan, Poland, her home city. Her main area of interest during training was pulmonary circulation with emphasis on arterial and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. This changed during the course of her PhD at Poznan University of Medical Sciences while studying three-dimensional delayed enhancement cardiac magnetic resonance in evaluating myocardial scar as a ventricular tachycardia substrate. This laid the foundation for her interest in cardiac arrhythmias. She moved to Royal Brompton Hospital (London) to further pursue training in cardiac electrophysiology and devices where she was appointed as a locum consultant electrophysiologist in 2022. In 2018 she joined the Young EP Committee at EHRA and two years later she became its chair. Jazz music, sailing and skiing with her two boys and family fulfil her life outside of work.
