Neurologists first earn an M.D. degree and become licensed to
practice medicine. If you are interested in pursuing a medical
degree, a high school education emphasizing college preparatory
classes is a must. Science courses, such as biology, chemistry, and
physics, are necessary, as are math courses. These classes will not
only provide you with an introduction to basic science and math
concepts but also allow you to determine your own aptitude in these
areas. Since college will be your next educational step, it is also
important to take English courses to develop your research and
writing skills. Foreign language and social science classes will
also help make you an appealing candidate for college admission as
well as prepare you for your future undergraduate and graduate
education. Courses in computer science are a must, as well, since
the computer is changing the way medicine is communicated and
shared by busy medical professionals.
