30 neurological disorders every doctor should know about

Neurology is a jungle of disorders and syndromes.

This creates a challenge for doctors and medical students…

What to prioritise for learning and practice?


To solve this conundrum

We combed the extensive database of Neurochecklists

Seeking  neurological disorders with the worst prevalence and clinical burden.


We then came up with this list of the top 30 neurological disorders
