The majority of the didactic work for the CNT Program will be completed within the first 12 months of the program. You'll take part of this course work at both Rochester Community and Technical College and Mayo Clinic. Clinical rotations are scheduled in each of the division's laboratories.
During the final 12 months of the program, you will gain hands-on clinical experience in Mayo Clinic's Division of Clinical Neurophysiology and the Center for Sleep Medicine.
Clinical rotations are scheduled in several laboratories at Mayo Clinic. No off-site rotations are required as part of the program curriculum.
