Dr. Lis Evered Awarded Honorary Fellowship of ANZCA

Dr. Lis Evered was awarded Honorary Fellowship of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA).    

Dr. Evered is a visiting associate professor of neuroscience in anaesthesiology at Weill Cornell Medicine. She holds a BSc, MBiostatistics and a PhD in neuroscience, and is scientific head of research in the Department of Anaesthesia and Acute Pain Medicine at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia where she makes her home. She is also an associate professor at the University of Melbourne.    

The author of more than 80 publications in cognitive clinical research, Dr. Evered’s main area of research interest is identifying the impact of surgery and anaestheisa on the cognitive trajectory of older individuals.   

In announcing the award, the ANZCA Council remarked on Dr. Evered’s eminent status and the important roles she has played in advancing anaesthesia. Specifically, the council highlighted her international leadership in perioperative clinical cognitive science and perioperative medicine, and her longstanding contribution to ANZCA’s academic and research activities.     

“The recognition by my anesthesia colleagues is overwhelming,” said Dr. Evered. “It is such an acknowledgement of my contributions that I didn’t expect.”     

ANZCA is one of the largest specialist medical colleges in Australia and New Zealand, and the region's foremost authority on anaesthesia, pain medicine and perioperative medicine.
