What does a Neurologist do?

A neurologist is a medical specialist who treats diseases of the nervous system. Examples include common disorders such as migraine, epilepsy, stroke, and Parkinson's disease, and less common disorders such as multiple sclerosis, motor neuron disease, and muscle diseases such as muscular dystrophies.

Neurologists complete primary medical school qualifications (MBChB in NZ, or MD in United States/Europe) . This is followed by specialist training in NZ or overseas, after which they are registered as specialist physicians with the Medical Council of NZ, and in most cases, also with the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP). Most neurologists will have completed training for up to 14-15 years following graduation from secondary school, sometimes longer.
