Fellowship is an elected position open to members who have demonstrated continuous, meritorious research in cardiovascular physiology.
The purpose of electing fellows:
- Recognize meritorious research in cardiovascular physiology.
- Provide a candidate pool for officers and committee members of the Section.
- Provide a candidate pool for the Carl J. Wiggers award.
A prospective fellow shall:
- Be a regular member of the American Physiological Society.
- Have their primary or secondary affiliation with the Cardiovascular Section.
- Publish meritorious physiological research in the cardiovascular field.
- Be an established investigator.
Nominations for fellowship will be made by two Cardiovascular Fellows submitting letters of nomination to the Chair of the Section’s Fellowship Committee.

When a fellow becomes an emeritus member of the APS, he/she relinquishes his/her fellowship and becomes an emeritus member of the Section.
