Department and Faculty

Mayo Clinic's Department of Neurology in Arizona includes a highly integrated, collaborative group of neurologists who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and research of conditions and diseases affecting the nervous system.

The department has a number of specialty clinics composed of professionals dedicated to improving the quality of life for those affected by these diseases. Neurology physicians are also engaged in a wide variety of research projects, including the study of new and investigational drugs.

Faculty

In addition to caring for patients in clinical practice, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. You work closely with the neurology faculty throughout your training in the Adult Neurology Residency.

Advisers and mentors

In addition to the support of your program director and two program coordinators, faculty advisors are available to provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. You meet with your adviser periodically throughout the program to review your progress and career goals, and ensure that your educational needs are being met. Your adviser may serve as a contact point for introducing you and your family to the Phoenix area and the Mayo Clinic system.

Visiting professors

Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during lectures, participate in hospital rounds and have informal discussions with trainees. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these educational opportunities.
