A neurologist is a medical doctor with additional special training in diagnosing and treating disorders of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. A neurologist’s medical training includes college, four years of medical school, a one-year internship and three years of neurology residency training. Some neurologists have additional training in one area of neurology such as stroke, epilepsy, movement disorders or dementia.
