Sid Gilman, Neurologist at the University of Michigan, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of neurology education.

Fascinated by all fields of specialty medicine, Dr. Gilman ultimately decided to pursue neurology. He was inspired by Dr. Denny-Brown, Brown who was a professor of neurology at Boston City Hospital and had a chair at Harvard Medical School, and Dr. Augustus Rose, a professor of neurology who embodied all the positive qualities of a neurologist. Seeking to emulate his mentors, Dr. Gilman strove to follow his dreams and always encourages others to do what they want in life and remain open the opportunities life presents. He pursued his own passion for neurology and earned a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California Los Angeles in 1954, a Doctor of Medicine in 1957, and was named a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 2001. Dr. Gilman worked for the University of Michigan since 1977 and served as the chair of the Department of Neurology as well as William J. Herdman Distinguished University Professor of Neurology during his time with the institution until his retirement in 2012. Furthermore, he taught at Harvard Medical School as well as Columbia University and considers teaching generations of medical students and residents about neurology and the diseases of the nerve system to be his greatest personal achievement.

Dr. Gilman keeps abreast of medical developments by continuing to see patients, attending patient rounds at a local hospital, and reading about developments in neurology. He has involved himself in endeavors apart from his teaching career such as serving as the director of the Michigan Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, acting on subcommittees of the National Advisory Neurological Disorders and Stroke Council, sharing his knowledge with the Food and Drug Administration, and working with the National Institute of Diseases, Communicative Disorders, and Strokes. Now retired, Dr. Gilman intends to spend the next chapter of his life with his wife, Dr. Carol G. Barbour, as nothing matters to him more at this time. As a testament to his success, Dr. Gilman has been lauded with numerous awards such as the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award and has been included in various editions of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in Medicine and Healthcare, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, Who’s Who in the Midwest and Who’s Who in the World.
