Stephen Krieger, MD, associate professor of neurology at the Icahn School of medicine at Mount Sinai discusses why students become neurologists. “What we looked at in our project was the neurology residency personal statement—the part of the application where students explain their reasons for wanting to join the field.” He added, “They talked about how neurologists have deep connections with patients and care about quality of life and education for patient care. They talked about personal and family history with neurologic diseases, which is a huge driver of the interest in joining our field.”
