Neurologists have a wide availability of treatments, high-tech equipment, and diagnostic capabilities that they can offer their patients, many that weren't available ten to twenty years ago. There is also a lot of research in the field of neurology which can make every day a learning experience. Going into the practice of neurology can be fulfilling and meaningful. It can also be stressful and demanding, as long hours are spent with patients that have life-threatening diseases and chronic illnesses.
