About C. McCollister Evarts, MD, FAOA

C. McCollister Evarts, MD, FAOA

In recognition of Dr. Evarts’ transformational gift to the AOA, the Executive Committee honored Dr. Evarts by renaming the Resident Leadership Forum as the C. McCollister Evarts Resident Leadership Forum in 2016.

Dr. Evarts has had a tremendous impact on orthopaedics. He has served as Chair of two Orthopaedic Departments, CEO and Dean of two academic health centers, and been the recipient of many honors and awards—including the AOA’s Distinguished Contributions to Orthopaedics Award in 2006.

Dr. Evarts served as AOA President in 1985. He also served as President for AAHC, Hip Society, American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, and OMeGA Medical Grants Association. He is a member of the Institute of Medicine. He acknowledges that without the support of family and friends, all his other achievements would be diminished.
