The Senior Perfusionist Award is presented to active members of The Missouri Perfusion Society who have 10 or more years of clinical experience as a perfusionist.  Completion of 10 years in clinical practice by a perfusionist is an achievement worthy of recognition from the perfusion community.  There is no charge for this recognition, it is a member benefit to all those who qualify.

Award Presentation

Perfusionists who achieve this record of longevity will receive the title of  “Senior Perfusionist”, a certificate suitable for display from The Missouri Perfusion Society and a personalized desktop crystal award. Perfusionists are recognized at our Annual Scientific Meeting.


To qualify for Senior Perfusionist recognition, members should send their Curriculum Vitae (CV) documenting 10 years of clinical practice as of April 1st to the Awards Committee Chairman.  The CV need only document employment history as a perfusionist for a period of at least 10 years.  The period of activity as a student does not qualify.

Lifetime of the Award

Perfusionist recognition is a member benefit from The Missouri Perfusion Society. However, once awarded, the appellation will be recognized for life by The Missouri Perfusion Society regardless of future membership status. Any non-member who wishes to be officially recognized as a Senior Perfusionist can submit a membership fee to The Missouri Perfusion Society along with their CV.
