According to http://www.centraltexasneurology.com/whats-a-neurologist.html but it may vary by State.

Four years of premedical education in a college or university
Four years of medical school resulting in an MD or DO degree (doctor of medicine or doctor of osteopathy degree)
One year internship in either internal medicine or medicine/surgery
At least 3 years of specialty training in an accredited neurology residency program
1-3 years of subspecialty fellowship training in areas such as epilepsy, movement disorders, etc, may then be undertaken

Residency programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) provide supervised experience in hospital and ambulatory care settings, as well as educational conferences and research trainings.

Board Certification
To be eligible for board certification applicants must:
have an unrestricted state license to practice medicine
complete the required years of residency
successfully pass both a written (Part I) and oral (Part II) exam administered by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology
