Department and Faculty
Mayo Clinic's Department of Psychiatry and Psychology provides diagnosis and treatment evaluations for patients with neurological disorders, cognitive impairment related to medical or psychiatric illness, and behavioral or psychological problems associated with a variety of medical conditions.
Research interests among faculty members include normal aging, cross-cultural neuropsychology, neurodegenerative conditions (such as Alzheimer's disease, Lewy body disease and motor neuron disease), cerebrovascular disease, neurosurgical interventions for movement disorders, organ transplantation, cancer prevention and sleep disorders.
All neuropsychology faculty are board certified and members of the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology. The department's psychiatrists have particular expertise in neuropsychiatry, psychopharmacology, sleep disorders and organ transplantation.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic psychiatry and psychology faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty are recognized leaders in their fields and have published and lectured extensively. You have direct access to these individuals throughout the Clinical Neuropsychology Fellowship.
Prominent scientists visit Mayo Clinic throughout each year to present their work during invited lectures and seminars. You are welcome to attend all of the conferences, lectures and seminars prepared for residents, fellows and consulting staff of Mayo Clinic.
