Is Neurology a good Career option?

I think Neurology is a great Career option. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find information about What Neurology actually is.

Career Video on Neurology

In a video, Dr Mahesh Kuriyal has talked about various aspects of a Career in Neurology. Dr Mahesh Kuriyal started by explaining Neurology as: "Neurology is defined as the study of nervous system which includes body parts,brain,spinal cord and nerves." The video gave me so much food for thought.

I found the video unique because it talked about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in Neurology and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into Neurology. Dr Mahesh Kuriyal touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
  • Brain,Spinal Cord and Nerves

  • Diagnostic and Research Skills
  • Empathy
  • Pressure Handling
  • Time Management
  • Strong Ethics
  • Decision Making

  • High Requirement in the Society
  • Respect and Reward
  • Immense Satisfaction

After a discussion on Positives, Challenges complete the caricature of a Career.
And, Dr Mahesh Kuriyal believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Neurology:
  • Difficult Job
