Fellow of the Clinical Exercise Physiology Association

Become an FCEPA

Fellowship in the CEPA recognizes recipients for their outstanding service to the field of clinical exercise physiology and their professional achievements. Earning Fellow status should not be considered a final step in your career, but rather an acknowledgement of your commitment to, and excellence in the profession. And hopefully it will motivate the recipient to continue to be involved in CEPA.
