Why did you choose neurology for your residency training?

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

This is almost a regular question, that interviewer's ask in your residency interviews. He/She wants to know some specific and unique reasons why you decided to train in this specialty. So its better to be as unique as possible and think yourselves over why you applied for that specialty. Given below are some of the generic explanations for this question. Go through and formulate your own replies.

Neurology is complex and I love such complexity. My subjects of interest during the first year were neuroanatomy and neurophysiology. I became fascinated by the complex neural pathways through which much of the essential signals are transmitted. I took special interest in developmental neuroanatomy and with the help of Dr. Lancanster, our anatomy tutor, I desected the brain of lower mammals and then human brain. I love pasting pictures of  pyramidal and other neural tracts in my room and look over them now and then. By the end of my second year at medical school, I had decided that I would become a neurologist. During my intership, I worked at Prof. Peter Barne's neurology ward. I had the opportunity to watch the discussions they had on each cases. The overlapping presentations, the numerous possible differential diagnoses and the difficulty in arriving at a specific diagnosis in neurology made me realise the depth and vastness of the field. I am positive I am suited for this challenging  and unique specialty and hence I applied for the neurology residency.

Whenever I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Besides that, wonderful site!
