Department and Faculty

The Department of Neurology at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, adopted a model to provide coverage to the inpatient general neurology and consultative services in 2007. This model has proved effective in delivering high-quality inpatient neurological care, promoting resident and fellow education, and offering a platform for inpatient neurological research.

Faculty

In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields.

Mayo Clinic's vascular neurology faculty members in Florida serve as national and international leaders in this emerging and rapidly growing subspecialty:

Benjamin H. Eidelman, M.D.

Kevin M. Barrett, M.D.

Thomas G. Brott, M.D.

Fellows have direct access to these individuals throughout the training program.

Advisers and mentors

Fellows are assigned dedicated faculty advisers who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Trainees meet with their advisers periodically throughout the fellowship to review progress and career goals, and ensure that their educational needs are being met. Advisers also serve as a contact point for introducing fellows and their families to Jacksonville, Florida, and the Mayo Clinic system.

Visiting professors

Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during lectures, participate in hospital rounds and have informal discussions with trainees. Fellows are encouraged to take full advantage of these educational opportunities.
