Jacqueline Evans --100 Alumni You Should Know


Dr. Jacqueline Evans embodies the qualities that a liberal arts education is designed to instill in a person. Her curiosity, ambition and dedication to service have been clearly illustrated from her time in the President’s Leadership Council at USAO to her vocation as a doctor of emergency medicine and Captain in the United State Air Force.

Evans first came to USAO for a recruitment function, but, as it turns out, she was on the wrong college campus in the wrong town. After a conversation with a faculty member, she quickly decided that this was the university for her and proved to be the ideal type of student that our interdisciplinary curriculum was designed to accommodate.

Having always known that medicine is her calling, Evans pursued a bachelor of science degree in biology, graduating summa cum laude in April 2010. She was named that term’s Distinguished Graduate, a faculty-nominated award which is the highest honor a graduating senior can receive.

Following her graduation from USAO, Evans joined the Air Force’s Commissioned Officer Training program and continued her education at the University of Oklahoma’s College of Medicine. She was named a doctor of medicine at the end of May 2014, and, since then, has performed three years of post-graduate work in the emergency medical field. Dr. Evans currently holds the rank of Captain in the USAF.

As an undergraduate, Evans was a member of the President’s Leadership Council (PLC), and served as its president from 2008-10. One of USAO’s most prestigious scholarships, PLC emphasizes both academic excellence and community service. Evans epitomized these ideals, constantly impressing her professors with her work ethic, organization, and dedication to learning. She also served as president of the Alpha Lambda Delta honor society from 2006-07 and vice president of the Hypatia honor society from 2009-10.

As a medical student, Evans performed a comprehensive literature review on the incidence, type and treatment for urologic complications of placental growth during pregnancy for a presentation at the Society of Government Service Urologists in 2013.

Evans is a member in good-standing of several professional societies in the medical field. She joined the American Medical Association in 2010 and has been a member of both the Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association (EMRA) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) since 2012. In 2017, Evans received the USAO Young Alumni Award.
