Dr. Erickson received his MD and PhD degrees from Mayo Medical & Graduate Schools and then did his residency in diagnostic radiology and Neuroradiology fellowship at Mayo Clinic. He went on staff at Mayo Clinic, where he is currently a Professor of Radiology, and was heavily involved in implementing a filmless department, including being the writer and lead on QREADS, and then worked with various EMR projects, including being the Vice Chair for Information Technology. More recently, he has re-focused on imaging informatics research, receiving NIH grants for brain cancer, multiple sclerosis, and polycystic kidney disease. He is particularly involved with the application of deep learning to medical images, which is the emerging field of radiogenomics. He was the founding Chair of the Division of Imaging Informatics, and is currently the Associate Chair for Research in Radiology.
