anthony osifuyeAnthony Osifuye, MD

Education: University of Minnesota Medical School; Hennepin County Medical Center, Minneapolis, MN; 2021-2022, Internship

Hobbies: Spending time with my wife, biking, cooking, dancing, eating at new restaurants, and traveling. I also enjoy rapping and making ceramic pottery.

Why did you chose U of M for residency? I chose the University of Minnesota for residency because of the strong degree of team work, collegiality, and comraderie along with the culture of excellence that exists in the department among the faculty and staff. The IR department boasts a long history of medical device innovation and internationally renowned research, which I am excited to get involved in. The U of M is one of few programs that continues to train residents in peripheral arterial disease interventions, which is an area that I am highly interested in because the condition disproportionately affects African-Americans. In addition, the U of M has a vast array of complex pathology that will diversify and enhance my skills as a future interventionalist. The U of M has also has robust outpatient clinic providing longitudinal patient care experiences, which will enable me to develop into a physician with strong clinical acumen. I am absolutely thrilled to be receiving my training at the U of M, which has both a strong Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology department.

Why did you chose U of M for residency? I knew I would get exceptional training both in diagnostic and intervetional Radiology. Most importantly, the faculty and trainees I had met were friendly, supportive and proud of their program. The U has strong well rounded departments across the board in all diagnostic subspecialties and is among the best NIH funded programs nationaly. The IR section provides excellent traning across a variety of procedures by faculty that lecture at the national and international level. I'm also excited about the posibility to get involved in high profile clinical trials currently taking part at the U. In addition, Minneapolis is a hot spot for medical device development with some of the worlds largest medical device companies and numerous startups located around the Twin Cities.

Hobbies: I love traveling to different parts of the world and meeting people from different cultures, sci-fi movies, basketball, skiing, hang out with friends and family, and drinking wine.

Why did you choose the University of Minnesota?

This is a residency program with great reputation, focus on clinical oriented radiology, many research opportunities, and fun yet smart people.  It is one of the few radiology programs that I interviewed with that is very honest and resident oriented.  The program has full insight of its limitation and areas that needed improvement, and continues to improve upon.  Most importantly, people (staff/faculties/residents, etc.) are super genuine, friendly, supportive, and welcoming. Just after first year, I have already made some life-long friends in the program.

HobbiesHunting, fishing, hanging out with my wife, playing with our boxer, Archer, trying new beers, grilling and smoking meat, yard work. 

Why did you choose the University of Minnesota?

I don't like hot weather. The program size allows for many new friendships and with that, inspires new interests. The fact that we rotate to several different hospitals gives insight to how different kinds of hospitals are operated and the types of patients you will encounter (quaternary hospital, children's, county safety net hospital, VA). UMN offers several fellowships. High volume and diverse case load.
