A Career in Neurology
The Neurologists deals with a wide range of acute neurological conditions such as stroke, status epilepticus, Myasthenic crisis and Gullain Barre syndrome as well as chronic conditions including Parkinson's disease and Multiple Sclerosis.
Contrary to the common perception that neurological conditions are untreatable.
There have been significant therapeutic advances in treatment of some neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis.
Neurology offers many opportunities for research. Majority of trainees spend 2-3 years in full-time research, either before starting Neurology training or they take time off the training programme to complete their research.
During this period trainees develop research skills and define their eventual subspecialty interest which may include movement disorders, neuromuscular diseases, Multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, headaches or stroke.
