Is Neurology the Job for me?

Person Requirements

Neurology is a stimulating career and is an intellectually challenging and satisfying specialty where clinical skills are used to the full. So much of diagnosis in neurology is still about excellent history-taking and examination

Neurology will particularly suit trainees who:

  • have good clinical skills (that combine a good knowledge of anatomy with good listening skills)
  • are team players but able to work with a measure of independence
  • are innovative with strong logical reasoning skills


A full MRCP(UK) is an essential requirement to start at ST3 level.
