American Osteopathic Academy honors leaders in the field.
Dr. Phillip Arnold of Ministry Door County Medical Center will receive the Award of Fellow from the American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine (AOASM). The award recognizes the highest level of experience, dedication, service and contributions to the advancement of Sports Medicine.
Dr. Arnold is a family doctor who brings his expertise in sports medicine to his patients through his practice at Ministry North Shore Medical Clinic in Fish Creek. He enjoys being involved with local high school athletes, both on the sidelines and in the clinic. “Being a family doctor, my patients come to me all the time with aches and pains. I like to be able to use my knowledge of sports medicine to help them immediately,” he says.
In addition to serving as chair of Ministry’s Sports Medicine Clinic, Dr. Arnold is a credentialed physician to the U.S. Ski Team. Though he didn’t travel to the Olympics last month, he has made 15 trips with the team over the past five years. “I was first on call for the Olympics, and have served at numerous World Cup championships,” he says. “It’s a great honor and a great learning experience to be part of the U.S. Ski Team organization.”
Dr. Arnold is the medical director for the Door County Half Marathon and for Scandia Village Nursing Home. He has also served as a medical team member on various mountaineering expeditions, including Macchu Picchu, Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Everest.
“We are proud that Dr. Arnold has been recognized at the national level for his high level of expertise and accomplishment in the field of sports medicine,” says Gerald Worrick, CEO of Ministry Door County Medical Center. “His commitment to the community and to his patients is apparent in his wide range of involvement and the challenges he takes on.”
Dr. Arnold will receive the award on Friday, March 21 during the AOASM Sports Medicine Conference in Tampa, FL.
