Conditions such as MS, Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease are just some of the disorders a neurologist may offer long-term care for.

An addition 4 years must be spent doing an internship in neurology. A total of 12 years of study and training are required, along with writing certification exams, to become a certified neurologist.
