Gil Rabinovici, M.D.

Neurologist

Dr. Gil Rabinovici is a neurologist at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center who evaluates patients and manages their care. His research focuses on brain imaging techniques that can help with the diagnosis and management of dementia.

Rabinovici received a fellowship award from the John Douglas French Alzheimer's Foundation, the Kathryn Grupe Award from the Alzheimer's Association of Northern California and Northern Nevada and the Henry Newman Award from the San Francisco Neurological Society. He earned a medical degree at Northwestern University Medical School and completed an internship in internal medicine at Stanford University. He served as co-chief resident while completing a neurology residency at UCSF. Rabinovici is an assistant clinical professor of neurology at UCSF.
