Thomas Floyd Osborne, MD, Director, Radiologist, and Neuroradiologist at Virtual Radiologic, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Experts for dedication, achievements, and leadership in health care.
Desiring to make a difference, Dr. Osborne decided at a young age that the best way to do that was to pursue his interest in science. He excelled in medical school, and it was there that he was exposed to radiology, the health care medium he would eventually dedicate his life to. One of the first times he was introduced to it, an interventional radiologist used imaging machines and a special non-invasive surgical technique that not only diagnosed his patient, but quickly fixed the problem. Watching it all happen on the screen made Dr. Osborne feel like he was in a science fiction movie, and it seemed to him that this was where the future of medicine should be, and thus where he wanted to be.
To achieve his goals, Dr. Osborne earned a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Santa Barbara with high honors and distinction and an MD from the Dartmouth Geisel School of Medicine, and completed an internship in internal medicine at St. Mary Medical Center at the University of California, Los Angeles, a diagnostic radiology and chief residency at Mount Auburn Hospital at Harvard Medical School, and a fellowship in neuroradiology at Massachusetts General Hospital at Harvard Medical School. He then became licensed to practice medicine in the states of California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin, the commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the District of Columbia. Additionally, he holds a DEA certification, a human subjects research certification from the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative, and diagnostic radiology and CAQ subspecialty in neuroradiology certifications from the American Board of Radiology Certification.
Dr. Osborne proceeded to advance rapidly through the field, with positions like attending staff neurologist and instructor at Harvard Medical School, staff physician at Radiology Associates of San Luis Obispo, and independent medical reviewer, panel member and subject matter expert for the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. He joined Virtual Radiologic, owned by MEDNAX, as a diagnostic radiologist and neuroradiologist in 2009, and maintains the titles to this day. He also serves Virtual Radiologic as the director of medical informatics, and MEDNAX as the director of clinical research and a research advisory committee team member. He has been a board member of Telemedicine and Health Today since 2016 and the creator, author and owner of TastyLandscape.com since 2013. The book he co-edited, “Using Technology to Improve Care of Older Adults,” was released in 2017.
Attributing his success to hard work, drive, and passion, Dr. Osborne is proud of the accolades he has received throughout the years. He was named among the Top People to Watch in Radiology by the Journal of Diagnostic Imaging in 2015, and was recognized for having the best student project by the Generalist Physician Initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Grant in 2000. He also obtained a fellowship from the China Medical Board of New York, the Sayles Student Research Grant from the Dartmouth Ethics Institute the Dartmouth Medical School Enrichment Grant, the William Dole Memorial Art Scholarship, and the President’s Undergraduate Fellowship from the Undergraduate Research Program at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Further, he earned a number of lacrosse honors, the Academic Excellence Award, and the Athletic Academic Achievement Award.
Looking to the future, Dr. Osborne hopes to be in a leadership position where he can really change policies and have a huge impact on communities and countries. He wants to connect technology and the clinical side of medicine with the business side; bringing all three factors together in an efficient and effective way would allow health care to be provided in a safer way at a lower cost. If he can do that on a large hospital system basis then that impact could have rippling effects to other hospitals throughout the country and throughout the world.
