Application Process


The fellowship has nine positions, each with a two-year duration. Therefore, either three or four slots (at least one or two depending on the recruitment year) are available on a competitive basis each year in the Medical Psychology Fellowship in each specialty area: Clinical Child Psychology, Clinical Health Psychology and Clinical Neuropsychology (adult and pediatric).

Contact the program for information about how many positions are available in your chosen specialty program.

How to apply

You must apply through the APPA CAS application.

Applications for the 2017-2018 academic year should be completed by Dec. 16 for each specialty area.

While the academic year begins July 1, the start date is flexible depending on the individual circumstances for each postdoctoral fellow.

  1. To apply to the program, visit the APPA CAS application website. All applications to Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education programs must include these application materials.

    In addition, this program requires a letter of recommendation from your graduate school training director. Ask your training director to document that you are in good standing and will complete the training program before you start our fellowship. Also, you may ask others more familiar with your skills and qualifications to send letters of recommendation. Four letters are sufficient. These should be submitted with your online application.

  2. If you are considered for a position, you are asked to visit Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, for an interview with the program director, the director for your specialty, selected faculty and current postdocs in the program. Interviews are conducted in January and February.
  3. The Clinical Neuropsychology program participates in the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology Match.
