Dr Katarzyna Malaczynska-Rajpold
Dr Katarzyna Malaczynska-Rajpold was born in Poland. She completed her medical school as well as training in cardiology in Poznan, her home city.
Her main area of interest during training was pulmonary circulation with emphasis on arterial and chronic thrombo-embolic 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. In 2018 she was a visiting fellow at the Arrhythmia Section in the Hospital Clinic in Barcelona. In 2018 she became an executive member of the Young EP Committee at EHRA.
