Department and Faculty
The neurosciences team at Mayo Clinic is a highly integrated, collaborative group composed of the Department of Neurology and Department of Neurosurgery. The core training at Mayo Clinic is augmented by rotating through Nemours Children's Hospital to enrich both the adult and pediatric experience by exposure to neurologists who specialize in the research, diagnosis, and treatment of more than 500 conditions and diseases affecting the nervous system.
More than 25 specialists at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, provide both one-time evaluation and continuing care for patients with neurological diseases. 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 a comprehensive plan of care.
The core faculty dedicated to the Clinical Neurophysiology Electroencephalography Fellowship has considerable experience in EEG and clinical neurophysiology as well as epilepsy. The Department of Neurology is capable of evaluating and treating patients with complex neurological disorders requiring clinical neurophysiological monitoring with the opportunity to pursue individual clinical and research interests and expertise during fellowship training.
Mayo Clinic has a very sophisticated and well-developed electronic medical record system that is integrated throughout all Mayo campuses and facilities, and covers both inpatient and outpatient medical interactions. It allows for rapid retrieval of all clinical, laboratory and imaging studies for patients. A department intranet site provides ready access to extensive online resources for neurological education.
The staff has collectively published hundreds of manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals and contributed toward many well-known books.
Specific expertise of staff members and the reputation of Mayo Clinic lead to a high-volume practice with a large proportion of patients with complex and challenging medical problems. The experience of the staff, coupled with the high-quality, integrated, and efficient practices of all clinical and laboratory specialties, makes Mayo Clinic one of the finest clinical practices of medicine in the world.
You are assigned a faculty adviser who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year and present their work during lectures. Residents and fellows are encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities to interact with experts from other academic centers.
