Program description

Mayo Clinic offers a one-year fellowship training program in neuroanesthesiology at its campus in Rochester, Minnesota. This clinical fellowship has a great deal of flexibility to accommodate varied interests among fellows and is strongly rooted in Mayo's commitment to patient care, education and research.

This is a highly specialized and individualized fellowship, as it accepts only one fellow each year. The primary goal of the Neuroanesthesiology Fellowship is to train outstanding specialists to become future leaders in the discipline of neuroanesthesiology.

Fellows gain experience providing perioperative care for adult and pediatric patients having intracranial, spine and peripheral nerve procedures. Fellows also gain experience managing anesthesia for patients undergoing diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in the neuroradiology suite and providing care for critically ill patients in the Neurology/Neurosurgery Intensive Care Unit.


The Neuroanesthesiology Fellowship is currently a nonaccredited fellowship. The fellowship is open to physicians who have successfully completed an accredited residency training program in anesthesiology.


The Neuroanesthesiology Fellowship is considered subspecialty training in anesthesiology. After completing the 12-month program, graduates will receive a certificate of completion from Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education.
