Poison Center News

Meet Dr. Ryan Fuchs.

My name is Ryan Fuchs, MD. I grew up not far from here in Rogers, Minnesota, and obtained my undergraduate education from St. John’s University, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology and minor in chemistry.  During a gap year I worked as medical scribe at a community Emergency Department in St. Louis Park, MN. 

I attended medical school at the University of Minnesota. Basing my interest off my earlier scribe experience, I was drawn to emergency medicine. It wasn’t until my second year of medical school that I first learned of Medical Toxicology as a specialty. I gravitated towards toxicology lectures and sought out mentorship during medical school and residency, finding the toxicologists here being some of the strongest physicians and educators I know. Following completion of my Emergency Medicine residency training at Hennepin Healthcare in June 2021, I started fellowship in Medical Toxicology here at Regions/Minnesota Poison Center in July. 

I am ecstatic to be able to continue my training here, working with fantastic staff and serving the community that continues to inspire me daily. Outside of medicine, I enjoy backpacking, camping, rock climbing, soccer, and spending time with my wife and our adorable poodle.
