Application Process

One position is available on a competitive basis each year in the Neurologic Surgery Residency at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida.


To be eligible for the Neurologic Surgery Residency, you must have completed four years of medical school and graduated before the start of PGY-1.

Senior medical students interested in a neurologic surgery residency at Mayo Clinic are encouraged to apply for a visiting medical student clerkship rotation, which is generally one month long. The clerkship gives you an opportunity to become familiar with neurosurgery at Mayo Clinic and allows the neurosurgery faculty to get to know you.
