See general admissions page.

How to apply

Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education does not process printed applications to this program. You must apply through Recruit, a third-party application service. No matching program services are used.

Mayo's academic year begins on July 1 every year. You must submit a completed application form and all required documentation no later than Nov. 1 (approximately 18 months before the program year you are applying for begins).

Complete the following steps to apply:

  1. Create an account to begin the online Application for Admission
  2. All applications to Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education programs must include these application materials
  3. After submission, view the required Supplemental Items and Documents
    • Upload each required item in the Supplemental Items section (if applicable)
    • Complete the Recommendation Request section (if applicable)

Applicants considered for an appointment will be invited for a personal interview with the program director and selected faculty.

Interviews are conducted between December and March each year. In recent years, the vast majority of interviews have been completed by March 1.

Note: According to the ruling by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, international medical graduates with J-1 visas are permitted to complete only one year as a fellow in clinical neurophysiology, as clinical neurophysiology fellowships are accredited for one year by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

If you are considering a two-year training experience, consider applying for both the Clinical Neurophysiology Electroencephalography Fellowship and the Epilepsy Fellowship.
