Dr. McEvoy completed his residency in Pediatrics at Children's Hospital Colorado, a perennial Top 10 Children's Hospital in the U.S. In addition to his general pediatric training, he gained additional experience in several fields, including: Hematology-Oncology (both inpatient and outpatient), Hemophilia and Thrombosis, Radiation Oncology, Palliative Care, Orthopedic Oncology, and Neuro-Oncology research.
Dr. McEvoy decided in October 2006 to become a pediatric oncologist, while he was a sophomore in college. He made his decision based on previous family experience and a specific enlightening class called "Becoming a Doctor," and his decision was subsequently re-affirmed by his experience volunteering at summer camps for children with cancer.
Dr. McEvoy has extensive experience as a counselor, advisor, and medical staff for several summer camps that benefit children affected by cancer. He has volunteered at Camp Okizu in California (nine years), Roundup River Ranch in Colorado (one year), and Camp Kesem, a camp for children whose parents have cancer (11 years).
