Professor and Chair of the Department of Urologic Surgery, Christopher Evans, has received honorary membership in The European Association of Urology (EAU), an organization that promotes the highest standards of urological care throughout Europe. Evans is only the ninth American to receive this prestigious award, which recognizes his significant contributions to the development of urology in Europe.

Evans' recognized accomplishments include training several European clinical and research fellows, as well as delivering lectures and performing demonstration surgeries at European universities. His expertise and dedication have made a lasting impact on the field.

The opening ceremony of the 38th Annual EAU Congress, held in Milan, Italy, provided an opportunity for the European Association of Urology to acknowledge and honor this year's distinguished award recipients. During the congress, Evans also taught a course on prostate cancer for the European School of Urology and delivered multiple lectures, further sharing his knowledge and expertise.

During his tenure as president of the U.S. Society of Urologic Oncology from 2017 to 2019, Evans played a pivotal role in developing a scholar exchange program between the two societies. Additionally, he co-edited two textbooks that are now used in European medical schools, further contributing to the dissemination of knowledge in the field of urology.
