Open Neurology Positions

Neurology is the field of medicine devoted to diagnosing and treating conditions of the central nervous system, which includes the spinal cord, nerves, and brain. The central nervous system manages all the activities and actions of the body, including our abilities to move, feel, learn, breathe, and think.

Neurological disorders affect the normal function of the central nervous system. Once that happens, the patient could experience severe life-altering symptoms, such as muscle weakness, seizures, paralysis, pain, confusion, and loss of feeling in some parts of the body.

Patients don’t always fully recover from neurological diseases and conditions. For example, a stroke could permanently damage a person’s central nervous system and body functions. Other common debilitating neurological conditions are Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis.

The good news is that advanced treatment options are available for people suffering from neurological disorders. Neurologists are doctors who specialize in the areas of medicine concerning the central nervous system. They are fully qualified to diagnose neurological conditions and recommend suitable treatment options to reduce or eliminate their symptoms.

Neurologists are not the same as neurosurgeons because they don’t perform any brain or spinal cord surgery. Instead, they can prescribe medication and recommend the necessary preventative measures and lifestyle changes to prevent further progression or development of a neurological condition.

Many patients with neurological conditions respond well to medications and drug therapies. However, in cases where drug treatments and lifestyle changes are not enough to mitigate the symptoms for a particular patient, their neurologist may refer the patient to a neurosurgeon for a more invasive treatment option.

A neurologist’s most critical job is accurately diagnosing a patient’s neurological condition. Therefore, one or more neurological tests must be conducted to diagnose a patient’s condition accurately. These tests may include any of the following:

  • Electromyography
  • CAT (Computed Tomography) Scan
  • PET (Positron Emission Tomography) Scan
  • Carotid Artery Ultrasound
  • Biopsy

It is at the discretion of the neurologist to determine which neurological test is most appropriate to diagnose a patient’s symptoms.

Start Your Residency or Fellowship Today

Neurologists must complete a four-year undergraduate degree, a four-year medical degree (D.O. or M.D.), a one-year internship, and a three-year neurology residency program. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to specialize in a particular area of neurology, such as pain management, sleep medicine, neuromuscular, epilepsy, mobility disorders, and stroke.
