Post a Job

Whether you are preparing to interview a candidate or applying for a job, review our list of top Neurologist interview questions and answers.


What specific neurological disorders have you come into contact with or treated during your time as a neurologist?


There are a great variety of different disorders that the candidate may have treated or learned about. This question gives candidates an opportunity to provide you with their prior experience with treating or diagnosing different disorders and will help you discover the range of their knowledge. Sometimes, a candidate can have lots of experience but not have the range of expertise necessary to perform well in a more general field. What to look for in an answer:

  • Experience with a wide variety of neurological disorders
  • Any gaps in neurological expertise
  • Knowledge that is specific to your practice's specialty


"I have primarily worked with people who have disorders on the autism spectrum, but I have also gained invaluable experience with Alzheimer's and dementia."


What neurological electronic health record software types are you familiar with, if any?


Some doctors and neurologists continue to keep paper records and do not have experience with any electronic health record software. A prospective applicant may need training in order to learn how to use such software, which is a time-consuming process. Also, this question will give you an indication of the specific software types a candidate may have used in the past. What to look for in an answer:

  • Experience with electronic health record systems
  • What software the candidate prefers and why
  • Willingness to learn how to use electronic health record systems, if needed


"I have used EHR systems in my career: Kareo Clinical EHR Software and Athenahealth EMR Software. I prefer Kareo because it is easier to use."


Have you recently been enrolled in any continuing education courses in the field of neurology?


There are often new developments in neurology. Even people who have a lot of experience can get stuck doing things the same way for years. Enrollment in any kind of continuing education course will indicate whether the candidate is open to expanding their knowledge and adapting to change. It will also tell you if they are up-to-date in their knowledge. What to look for in an answer:

  • A highly motivated outlook
  • Willingness to be trained
  • Up-to-date understanding of neurology


"Within the last year, I took classes through the American Academy of Neurology to learn about teleneurology. I also took their NeuroSAE course to refresh my knowledge on best practices."


What recommendations would you give to a family member of a person with a neurological disorder?


This question reveals whether the candidate deals with patients on a personal level or not. Many doctors are extremely 'clinical' in their manner with patients. If your practice is focused on making patients and their families feel comfortable and cared for, the candidate should be able to provide examples of their efforts to do the same. What to look for in an answer:

  • Examples of personal relationships with patients' families
  • Indications of personal concern for patients
  • Experience assisting families with in-home care arrangements


"I usually warn families that these things take time. Just diagnosing someone with a disorder takes time, and the treatment period is hard for everyone."


Have you ever thought you needed to go one way with a treatment plan and decided to do something different based on patient preferences?


It is a constant frustration to patients and their families when they feel like they aren't being listened to. This question will tell you whether or not the potential candidate is willing to listen to a patient who thinks that they need to go a different way. At the very least, the candidate may be able to show they are willing to explain their reasoning to patients. What to look for in an answer:

  • Times the candidate listened to patients
  • Explain the reasons for their actions carefully
  • Sincere interest in patients' desires


"There was one instance where a parent felt that their child with autism didn't need therapy and that a change in diet would be enough, so I went along with that."
