After growing up and completing medical as well as radiology training in Cape Town, South Africa (population approximately 5 million), Dr. Stefan Przybojewski, felt it was getting a bit small and was looking for adventure. His escape from small town living in Cape Town came in the form of Cranbrook, British Columbia, where he spent two years as a general radiologist. Stefan had an interest for IR as a radiology resident in Cape Town, where they are given a significant amount more responsibility as trainees, like performing bronchial artery embolization solo on call. After two years in Cranbrook, and a better understanding of Canadian geography and population distribution, he successfully applied for an IR fellowship at the University of Calgary. And the rest, as they say, is history. Dr. Przybojewski stayed on with EFW Radiology at the University of Calgary Foothills Medical Centre after completing fellowship and has been on staff ever since.
Dr. Przybojewski has a diverse IR practice with a passion for palliative IR and interventional oncology. He is one of the organizers of the CAIR’s Grand Slams and Catastrophes course, is half of the dynamic duo behind the much loved Jeopardy session at the CAIR annual scientific meeting (along with his partner in radiology and in style, Dr. Jason Wong), and recently joined the Board of Directors of CAIR.
