Clinical Neurophysiology, Electroencephalography Fellowship (Minnesota)


Program description

The one-year Clinical Neurophysiology Electroencephalography Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, prepares you for an academic career by providing you with experience in teaching, research and clinical activities.

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

The Clinical Neurophysiology Electroencephalography Fellowship is an integrated program that encompasses electroencephalography (EEG) and epilepsy. This fellowship experience is one year long, though many fellows elect to take an additional year of training in epilepsy in the Epilepsy Fellowship.

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

During the program, you become proficient in:

  • Interpreting EEGs and prolonged recordings
  • Coordinating special studies
  • Surgical monitoring and cortical stimulation mapping
  • Clinical research
  • Teaching other medical trainees

The fellowship also offers formal neurophysiology coursework, research opportunities and additional training in Mayo Clinic's electromyography (EMG) and EEG laboratories.


The Clinical Neurophysiology Electroencephalography Fellowship is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.


Graduates are eligible to take the subspecialty certification examination in clinical neurophysiology given by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN).

This fellowship also meets the requirements for board certification through the American Board of Clinical Neurophysiology (ABCN).
