Program description

Mayo Clinic in Florida — in affiliation with the Nemours Children's Clinic — offers the three-year Child and Adolescent Neurology Residency. Mayo and Nemours have been collaborating for more than a decade to provide leading-edge training for residents and fellows.

The Child and Adolescent Neurology Residency offers extensive inpatient and outpatient clinical experience, didactic programs, and research opportunities. The pediatric portions of the residency take place at the Nemours Children's Clinic and adjacent Wolfson Children's Hospital. The adult clinical experience is provided at Mayo Clinic.

Your training program can be customized to meet your individual career goals in clinical or academic practice. The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) requires that you complete a minimum of two years of general pediatrics residency or one year of pediatric residency, plus one year of internal medicine residency to become certified in neurology with special qualification in child neurology.


After completing two years of pediatric training, you become board-eligible in both pediatrics and neurology with special qualification in child neurology. If you complete one year each of internal medicine and pediatrics, you become eligible only for neurology certification with special qualification in child neurology by the ABPN.

Program history

The Child and Adolescent Neurology Residency at Mayo Clinic/Nemours in Florida was accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in 2005 and accepted its first resident in 2006. Going forward, it is anticipated that one resident will be accepted into the program each year for a total of three residents in the program at any given time.

Residents are integrated into a rich training environment that includes 12 adult neurology residents based at Mayo Clinic in Florida, rotating adult and pediatric neurology residents from Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, 30 pediatric residents based at Wolfson Children's Hospital, and numerous adult neurology and pediatric subspecialty fellows.
