USD Physical Therapy student receives national award
Doeling, from Carrington, N.D., received the award in part for helping form The University of South Dakota Student Physical Therapy Association (USDSPTA) as well as the South Dakota Physical Therapy Association’s Student Special Interest Group (SDSSIG). As an officer with both organizations, he was instrumental in developing the bylaws and creating budgets. He also helped start a leadership fund within the SDSSIG to financially assist physical therapy and therapy assistant students attend national professional conferences and student conclaves. Doeling also shared news about legislative actions and other developments with physical therapy students at USD through his work as a student liaison for his class as well as for SDSSIG and USDSPTA. As a student liaison, he also helped students voice their thoughts to legislators and leaders of the South Dakota Physical Therapy Association.
Doeling "left his mark by advancing student leadership opportunities and raising the bar for future student liaisons," Patrick Cross, PT, DPT, wrote in a letter nominating Doeling for the award.
