There is one position available each year in the Child and Adolescent Neurology Residency. This position is integrated with the Mayo Clinic Adult Neurology Residency in Florida.
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.
How to apply
Appointments to the Child and Adolescent Neurology Residency are made through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) using the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).
The application deadline is Dec. 13, 2013.
To apply, see ERAS.
You need to provide:
- Official college, graduate school and medical school transcripts
- Official test transcripts for all applicable examinations (USMLE, LMCC, COMLEX, NBOME, FMGEMS, FLEX or NBME)
- A dean's letter and two other letters of recommendation
- A curriculum vitae
- A personal statement
- A valid ECFMG certificate (if you graduated from medical school outside of the U.S. or Canada)
At this point, applications need to be submitted two and a half to three years in advance of starting the neurology residency, generally in July through November of the senior year in medical school, as all other slots are filled. Interviews are conducted each year from September through January. The academic year begins in late June.
