The Mayo Clinic has been a household name for a long, long time, and US News consistently ranks the their neurology department (link to Mayo Clinic) among the strongest in the nation. Below is a list of where their neurologists and neurosurgeons who finished their undergraduate degrees in the year 2000 or after did their undergraduate studies. And because some students might be inclined to continue worrying in college that the medical school they attend will have a huge influence on their ability to be hired into a strong practice, I’m including the medical school and year of graduation for each neurologist in the right-hand column.

Numbers in parentheses are the years in which they finished their degrees; it ends with the year 2013 because it takes a long time to gain the knowledge and experience necessary to understand brains!!! Only 31% attended an MC25 school. If you want to be a brain surgeon–or ‘just’ a brain specialist–you’ll have plenty of opportunities open to you regardless of whether you attend one of the country’s most selective colleges and/or medical schools.
