Dr Machanic- I agree with you but you are being modest.. What you didn't say is that neurologists have a lot of cross over with psychiatry & are often quite knowledgeable in that area too.

Neurologist : Like all other md's & do's in the us, majority obtain a baccalaureate degree, complete a premedical curriculum, take the medical college admission test, go through 4 years of medical school, 1 year of internship in internal medicine, 3 years of residency in neurology, and some go on to sub-specialize.
