(Republic of Ireland) Fields of employment Hospitals, Clinics Polish neurologist Edward Flatau greatly influenced the developing field of neurology. He published a human brain atlas in 1894 and wrote a fundamental book on migraines in 1912. Jean-Martin Charcot is considered one of the fathers of neurology. Many neurologists also have additional training or interest in one area of neurology, such as stroke, epilepsy, neuromuscular, sleep medicine, pain management, or movement disorders. In the United States and Canada, neurologists are physicians having completed postgraduate training in neurology after graduation from medical school. Neurologists complete, on average, about 8 years of medical college education and clinical training, which includes obtaining a four-year undergraduate degree, a medical degree (DO or MD), which comprises an additional four years of study, then complete one year of basic clinical training and four years of residency. The four-year residency consists of one year of internal medicine internship training followed by three years of training in neurology. Some neurologists receive additional subspecialty training focusing on a particular area of the field. These training programs are called fellowships and are one to two years in duration. Subspecialties include brain injury medicine, clinical neurophysiology, epilepsy, hospice and palliative medicine, neurodevelopmental disabilities, neuromuscular medicine, pain medicine, sleep medicine, neurocritical care, vascular neurology (stroke), behavioural neurology, child neurology, headache, multiple sclerosis, neuroimaging, neurorehabilitation. In Germany, a compulsory year of psychiatry must be done to complete a residency in neurology. In the United Kingdom and Ireland, neurology is a subspecialty of general (internal) medicine.
