Clinical Neuropsychology Fellowship (Florida)

Overview

Program description

Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, offers a two-year full-time postdoctoral program for advanced training in clinical neuropsychology. The Clinical Neuropsychology Fellowship prepares doctoral-level neuropsychologists for board certification through the American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology (ABCN) and for careers in multidisciplinary medical or academic settings.

The training model focuses on outpatient medical neuropsychology evaluations in young, middle-age and older adults. A broad range of training opportunities are available in neurodegenerative disease, cerebrovascular disease, motor neuron disease, autoimmune and rheumatologic syndromes, organ transplantation, epilepsy, neuro-oncology, and other subspecialties. The fellow completes time in three major clinical rotations during the two-year training cycle:

  • Classic Primary Neurodegenerative Disease and Clinical Prodromes
  • Neurosurgical Populations (Epilepsy/Neuro-Oncology/Cerebrovascular)
  • Complex Medical Neuropsychology/Genetic Conditions

Accreditation

The Clinical Neuropsychology Fellowship is a member program of the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN). APPCN does not accredit postdoctoral programs, but has developed training standards and a code of conduct for affiliated programs to which this program complies.

Program history

The Clinical Neuropsychology Fellowship began in 1995. One fellow completes the program every two years. Former fellows have gone on to secure positions in academic departments, medical centers, private practice and industry.
