What are your steps to becoming a Neurologist?
At school, I am most interested in learning new things, hand-ons working, and sometimes working on my own but also working with others, while my hobbies include running, volunteering, and traveling. A topic that I am passionate about is how the brain functions. What are some career options that best align with these interests and what are some helpful next steps I can do in the near future? #medicine # #doctor # #healthcare #neurologist
To be a neurologist, you would have to complete a bachelor's degree which can be any major you'd like along with prerequisite courses for medical school. The next step would be to attend medical school which is 4 years. You can apply for residency which specializes in neurology. Time spent in residency varies from specialty to specialty which can be from anywhere from 2-6 years. You could also do and MD/PhD program where you get to do research in your specialty. This will allow you to really get into functions of the brain and finding treatments for certain diseases. Hope this helps!
