One position is offered on a competitive basis each year in the Vascular Neurology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona.


To be eligible for the Vascular Neurology Fellowship Program, you must have successfully completed an accredited residency program in neurology or physical medicine in the United States or Canada.

NOTE: According to the ruling by the Immigration Service, international medical graduates with J-1 visas are permitted to complete only one year as fellowships are accredited for one year by the ACGME.
