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 more than 500 conditions and diseases affecting the nervous system.

More than 100 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.

Each consultant has considerable experience in evaluating and treating patients with complex neurological disorders, and each has individual clinical and research interests and expertise.

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 leads to a high-volume practice with a high 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 work closely with these specialists throughout your training in the Clinical Neurophysiology Electromyography Fellowship.

Advisers and mentors

Faculty advisers are available to provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. You meet with your adviser periodically throughout the program to review your progress and career goals, and ensure that your educational needs are being met. Also, your adviser may serve 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 and have informal discussions with trainees. You 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.
