Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, offers a two-year full-time postdoctoral program for advanced training in clinical neuropsychology. The Clinical Neuropsychology Fellowship prepares doctoral-level neuropsychologists for board certification through the American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology (ABCN) and for careers in multidisciplinary medical or academic settings.
The training model focuses on outpatient medical neuropsychology evaluations in young, middle-age and older adults. A broad range of training opportunities are available in neurodegenerative disease, cerebrovascular disease, motor neuron disease, autoimmune and rheumatologic syndromes, organ transplantation, epilepsy, neuro-oncology, and other subspecialties. Additional clinical training opportunities and nonpsychology electives are available.
Research and didactic experiences in clinical neuropsychology and neuroscience are fundamental components to the fellowship experience.
The Clinical Neuropsychology Fellowship is a member program of the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN). APPCN does not accredit postdoctoral programs, but has developed training standards and a code of conduct for affiliated programs to which this program complies.
The Clinical Neuropsychology Fellowship began in 1995. Since that time, 11 trainees have completed this program (one fellow completes the program every two years). Former fellows have gone on to secure positions in academic departments, medical centers, private practice and industry.
