How Long?

It will take approximately twelve years to become a neurologist. Four years are spent in undergraduate school working towards a bachelor's degree, and then another four years in medical school (doctorate degree). After medical school, I will undertake a one year internship, followed by a three year residency program.

Why?

I have always loved learning new stuff about the brain and the nervous system, so having a career where I learn more about it every day will be fun for me. I also get excited about being able to treat people, and help them.
