Overview

Program description

The Clinical Neurophysiology Electroencephalography Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, prepares you for both an academic career and clinical practice by providing you with experience in teaching, research and clinical studies.

After completing your training, you have the knowledge and experience necessary to establish and supervise a clinical neurophysiology laboratory in a teaching institution or an integrated group practice.

The one-year Clinical Neurophysiology Electroencephalography Fellowship is a dedicated program that encompasses the study of electroencephalography (EEG) and epilepsy. Fellows may elect to take an additional year of fellowship training in adult or pediatric epilepsy.

The fellowship includes both didactic and clinical experiences. Experience in clinical epilepsy is integrated within the fellowship through rotations in the adult and pediatric epilepsy monitoring units and epilepsy clinic.

During the fellowship, you become proficient in:

  • Interpreting routine EEG
  • Utilizing video-EEG monitoring to advance patient care
  • Supervising continuous EEG monitoring
  • Performing advanced neurophysiological techniques
  • Coordinating intraoperative monitoring
  • Initiating clinical research projects
  • Educating other medical trainees
