Binh T. Phung, DO, Presented with the “A.T. Still Award of Excellence”

OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma Osteopathic Association presented Binh T. Phung, DO, with the A.T. Still Award of Excellence on April 27, 2019 at its 119th Annual Convention at the Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center in Norman, Oklahoma.

A.T Still is the founder of Osteopathic Medicine.  The A.T. Still Award is given to one doctor who embodies and exemplifies his teachings and has contributed significantly to the advancement of Osteopathic Medicine. 

Dr. Phung graduated from the Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2010, where he was named Student Doctor of the Year. He completed his pediatric residency at the Oklahoma State University Medical Center in 2013 and was named the AOA’s Pediatric Resident of the Year. Dr. Phung received several nominations not only from colleagues, but students and residents whom Dr. Phung has personally mentored. Over and over again the nominations described how patient, kind and dedicated Dr. Phung is to instilling osteopathic principles into the next generation of DO physicians. With the impact he’s made in the short time since completing his residency training, we cannot wait to see the effect Dr. Phung’s unwavering enthusiasm has in the years to come. The OOA is honored to have presented Dr. Phung with the A.T. Still Award of Excellence.   

The Oklahoma Osteopathic Association serves more than 2,300 members, including practicing physicians, residents, interns, osteopathic medical students and retired physicians. Doctors of osteopathic medicine, or DOs, practice in 69 of the state’s 77 counties and in 147 Oklahoma communities. Oklahoma DOs practice in all areas of medicine from cardiology to sports medicine to radiology.

DOs complete four years of medical training and continue their education in postgraduate internships and residencies. As complete physicians, DOs are able to prescribe medication and perform surgery. In addition, DOs have added training in osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM), a hands-on treatment tool they can use to diagnose and treat injuries or illnesses. OMM can be used in conjunction with, and sometimes in place of, medication or surgery to restore mobility and function.
