To apply for the Child and Adolescent Neurology Residency, you must have successfully completed the required preliminary graduate medical education — either two years of pediatric residency or one year of pediatrics combined with one year of internal medicine residency training.

Admission to the three-year Child and Adolescent Neurology Residency can be following two years of pediatric residency at the Jacksonville campus of University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville (ACGME ID 3201121055), which requires a separate ERAS application.

The transition from pediatrics is integrated, with most of our trainees choosing this route — spending the entire five years at the pediatric campuses located in Jacksonville.

We also consider residents who plan to complete two years of pediatric residency not at University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville, but rather at a different ACGME-accredited graduate medical education program. This will not affect your admission to the Mayo Clinic in Florida Child and Adolescent Neurology Residency.

Neuroscience M.D.-Ph.D. candidates may enter the child neurology program after one year of pediatric residency, subject to approval by the American Board of Neurology and Psychiatry. Entrance is at the PGY-3 level.
