The Chicagoland Perfusion Foundation (CPF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational opportunities, professional connections and assistance for people engaged in Perfusion careers. The CPF continues to build a regional community of support for Perfusionists in the Chicagoland area looking for many of the same educational opportunities and benefits of attending the larger, costlier National meetings right here in our backyard. Additionally, the CPF recognizes the need to foster the education of future generations of Perfusionists to help ensure students in the field those opportunities to succeed. Our goal of raising funds for additional humanitarian causes will be guided by the contemporary needs of our community, and the needs of the greater circle of connections to our profession.
The CPF will achieve its mission to support Perfusionists by directing resources toward the following goals:
With the generous support of business, and individual voluntary donations, the Chicagoland Perfusion Foundation can provide accessible educational resources that increase learning opportunities and contribute to improved patient care while providing much needed CEU credits through easy to access local meetings. The CPF has successfully hosted meetings for several years now at Ann & Robert H Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. The central Chicago location and state of the art conference facility help provide the best experience at reasonable costs.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Saturday, February 2, 2019.
Please join the Chicagoland Perfusion community for a day and evening of perfusion education, cardiac surgery advancements, innovative simulations, local cardiovascular surgery lore, and camaraderie.

The meeting will take place at Ann & Robert H Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. That meeting will adjourn to the conference facility of the EMC2 hotel nearby for further educational presentations, vendor exhibits, and a festive celebration to honor achievements in perfusion and cardiac surgery.
