Matthew McDougall, MD
Sioux Falls Veterans Health Administration
ORR Administrative Board - Chair
Liaison: Careers in Medicine

Dr. Matt McDougall earned his bachelor’s degree in Biology from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

In addition to his collegial studies, Matt also pursued an athletic passion for wrestling when he joined Augustana’s wrestling team. Among an elite group of athletes, Matt was selected to represent 300,000+ students in the NCAA’s National Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. It was in this position that Matt became heavily involved in the NCAA’s internal legislative process, co-chaired the Inter-divisional Administrative Team, and provided student-athlete input to the physicians, athletic trainers, and other medical staff on the NCAA Committee on Competitive Safeguards and Medical Aspects of Sports.

After college, Matt worked for the National Center for Drug Free Sport where he coordinated drug testing at NCAA championship events. During his medical school years he began to serve in the Army National Guard. Now Captain, Matt continues to provide needed care to the Native American population, and ensures the health of U.S. and allied troops in field training exercises. Matt completed medical school and residency training in psychiatry at the University of South Dakota, Sanford School of Medicine.

During residency, Matt was privileged to serve as a resident representative to the Assembly of the American Psychiatric Association (APA). In this position, he advanced three legislative proposals to develop resident leaders, received advocacy training, and represented the organization at its annual Advocacy Leadership Conference. Matt continued his resident representative role when he was appointed to serve as an Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Organization of Resident Representatives (ORR) member. His servant-leader approach provided him the foundational basis for appointment to the AAMC’s ORR administrative board where he now serves as Chair-elect.

Matt is currently an inpatient psychiatrist, and Medical Director of Psychiatry with the Sioux Falls Veterans Health Administration.
