Now Taking 2017 Scholarship Applications
The Missouri Perfusion Society is pleased to announce that registration is now open for our annual perfusion student scholarship contest. Since 2007, the Patrick D. Longenecker scholarship has awarded actively enrolled students with thousands of dollars towards their perfusion educations.
This year’s scholarship entrant will need to submit a case report summarizing an unusual case that they have either observed or participated in during their clinical rotation. Past submissions have included the pregnant patient on CPB, bridge to transplant patients, coagulopathic patients as well as ECMO case studies. The REQUIRED format is journal style to include an ABSTRACT AND REFERENCE section. Submissions other than the aforementioned format will be excluded from the contest.
The recipient of the Longenecker award will be expected to present their entry at the 22nd Annual Missouri Perfusion Society meeting in Springfield, Missouri on June 2nd & 3rd, 2017. The scholarship does include round trip airfare to Springfield, hotel accommodations and a monetary award of $1,500.00.

Also under the scholarship tab is a copy of this letter and past scholarship recipients. Deadline for submission is March 20, 2017. Winners will be notified by me within a week after the deadline and our Treasurer will be in touch with them regarding accommodations and monetary dispensation. We encourage all students to apply and we look forward to their submissions.
