Department and Faculty
The Department of Neurology at Mayo Clinic is a highly integrated, collaborative department of adult and pediatric neurologists who specialize in the research, diagnosis and treatment of over 500 conditions and diseases affecting the nervous system.
More than 80 specialists provide both one-time evaluation and continuing care for patients with neurologic disease. Close collaboration with specialists in pediatric and adolescent medicine, speech pathology, neurosurgery, psychiatry and psychology, pain management, sleep disorders and physical medicine and rehabilitation offer Mayo Clinic patients comprehensive care.
The Neurology staff at Mayo Clinic in Rochester includes five behavioral neurology specialists. Each consultant has considerable experience in evaluating and treating patients with complex neurobehavioral disorders, and each has his own particular interests, expertise, and approach to patient diagnosis and management. All fellows have found this varied exposure very educational, which then allows fellows to develop their own style for evaluating and managing patients.
The staff has collectively published hundreds of manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals and contributed towards many well-known books.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their field. You will have direct access to these individuals throughout your training program.
You will be assigned a faculty adviser who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. The adviser also serves as a contact point, introducing you and your family to Mayo Clinic and the communities in which you will train.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during morning and late afternoon lectures. Residents and fellows are encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities to interact with experts from other academic centers and are relieved from clinical assignments to do so.
