Neurologist Summary:
A Neurologist is a physician who diagnoses, treats, and manages disorders, disease and injuries to the nervous system. This includes such areas as the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. A referral is usually required from a family or attending physician.

A neurologist also manages long-term care for patients who are afflicted with diseases and disorders present at birth or that have developed later on in life. 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.

Education and Training: In order to become a neurologist, 4 years of undergraduate study followed by 4 years of medical school are required. 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.
