Richard’s Answer

Neurologists are physicians who have completed medical school and neurology residency.

In the US, to apply to medical school, you need a bachelor's degree. Any 4-year university should suffice.

Apply to medical schools during your last year of college.

Medical school takes 4 years to complete.

After medical school neurologists complete a residency for additional training.

After training neurologists can work in the hospital or clinic or both. A new field is teleneurology and telestroke. The neurologists works from their home or office and remotely evaluates neurological emergencies.

Try using a recruiter to help you find the perfect practice setting

Naiara’s Answer

To be a Neurologist and work as a physician (patient care) you will need to go to medical school and get a MD or DO degree, not a PhD. There are doctors who have both a medical degree and a PhD, but these take at least 6-7 years of schooling.
