Graduate medical education in psychology at Mayo Clinic
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. You will complete time in three major clinical rotations during the two-year training cycle:
Classic Primary Neurodegenerative Disease and Clinical Prodromes
Complex Medical Neuropsychology/Genetic Conditions
Your training experience
As a fellow at Mayo Clinic, you'll have access to robust clinical, educational, and research resources. You'll find support both inside and outside of the campus to promote physical and mental wellness and ensure your work/life balance.
We collaborate with learners to create individually tailored training experiences in clinical practice, research, and teaching. We train by the Mayo Clinic philosophy that "the needs of the patient come first” while also recognizing that the needs of the learner come first.
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.
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.
