Professor Potchen received his Bachelor's Degree in Physiology at Michigan State University. He completed his M.D. at Michigan State University's (MSU) College of Human Medicine and his Radiology Residency in Grand Rapids Michigan in the MSU affiliated GRAMEC program. He did his Neuroradiology Fellowship at Duke University. Following that, he served in various positions in the Department of Radiology at MSU including Fellowship Director, Clinical Director and Chief of Clinical Programs. He served as Core Faculty in MSU's African Studies Center and the International Neurologic & Psychiatric Epidemiology Program before recently relocating to the University of Rochester. He presently serves as Director of Diagnostic & Interventional Neuroradiology in the Department of Imaging Sciences at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
His primary interests are in teaching and research. He has taught extensively at all levels of undergraduate and graduate education. His research interests are internationally focused and include imaging in resource poor settings and the MRI findings in pediatric cerebral malaria. He has numerous publications in these and related areas. He has received funding from Governmental and Foundation sources. He is presently the Primary Investigator on a Dana Foundation Neuroimaging grant. He is presently President of the Eastern Radiologic Society.
