Behavioral neurology is a specialty for neurologists who want to develop clinical and research skills in neurodegenerative diseases and neurobehavioral syndromes.

Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville offers a one-year Behavioral Neurology Fellowship, which can be extended for a second year.

The fellowship allows you to observe patients with various kinds of dementia, memory disorders, aphasia, apraxia and neglect. These patients may have degenerative diseases, infarctions, demyelinating disorders, and seizure disorders.

You will also receive instruction in the interpretation of neuropsychological evaluations and may elect rotations in speech pathology, neuroimaging, and psychiatry.

Program History

The Behavioral Neurology Fellowship began at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville in 1999 and since that time, eleven fellows have completed their training in this program. Going forward, it is anticipated that one fellow will complete this program annually.
