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 conditions and diseases affecting the nervous system.

Mayo Clinic's neurological clinical material is rich and varied, offering you the opportunity to see both common and unusual neurological and neurosurgical problems.


In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's neurology faculty is committed to patient care, education and research in their daily practices. Many faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. You have direct access to these individuals throughout your training.

Each of the more than 60 neurology department faculty members belongs to a group of neurological subspecialists who supply unique clinical and research services to patients and colleagues.

The Division of Child and Adolescent Neurology is an integral part of the Department of Neurology and comprises several full-time members with varied expertise including neuro-oncology, sleep disorders, neonatal neurology, epilepsy, headache, movement disorders, neuromuscular disorders, neurometabolic disorders, autism, and developmental disorders and neuroimmunology:

Advisers and mentors

You are assigned a dedicated faculty adviser who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Trainees meet with their advisers periodically throughout the program to review their progress and career goals, and ensure that their educational needs are being met. Your adviser also serves as a contact point for introducing you and your family to Rochester, Minnesota, 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.
