Department and Faculty

The Department of Neurology at Mayo Clinic in Arizona is a highly integrated, collaborative group of neurologists who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and research of conditions and diseases affecting the nervous system. The department has a number of specialty clinics composed of professionals dedicated to improving the quality of life for those affected by these diseases. Neurology physicians are also engaged in a wide variety of research projects, including the study of new and investigational drugs.

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

As a resident in this program, you will have direct access to the Neurology Department staff throughout your training.


In addition to the support of your program director and two program coordinators, you will be assigned a faculty adviser who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Your adviser will serve as a contact point, introducing you and your family to the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and to Mayo Clinic.

Visiting Professors

Many prominent neurologists and neurology professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during morning or evening lectures and participate in hospital rounds. You will be encouraged to interact with these engaging visitors during rounds, meals and other sessions.
