Authors, Neil Shulman, MD

I met Neil Shulman, MD in January of 2007 at an event where he was talking about his book, Get Between the Covers, that he co-authored with Eric Spencer. That’s when he autographed my copy of this book. Inside there are success stories and an overview to publishing along with lessons learned.

Neil Shulman, MD is Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine at Emory University Medical School, Atlanta, Georgia. He has also co-authored the bestseller Doc Hollywood based on his book in 1991 which became a major motion picture starring Michael J. Fox.

There are many other books that he has written over the years and today I found stored inside my copy of his book on writing a signed “Posterbook”  that he wrote along with Michael Reznik, DDS. It has some wonderful illustrations by Mike Swaim. It’s called “Don’t be afraid of the Dentist” and it is a fun fold-out story “of a young boy named Booth, and his big nasty fear, and his poor aching tooth.”

And, you might just want to check out What’s in a Doctor’s bag where Doc Neil becomes a comedian, children’s performer, wearer of bow ties, and just a really funny guy for goofy education spots for kids on public television, with free downloadable material.

    I didn’t know Doc Hollywood was based on a book! Thank you, great post

    • You’re welcome and you probably didn’t know the book was called “What? Dead Again?” by Neil B. Shulman. According to his personal bio on the faculty profiles at Emory University it mentions the following: ”Another pursuit of Neil’s has been focused on improving access to health care in underserved communities in the U.S.A. He helped recruit doctors and nurses to rural areas, while developing rural community clinics. He also authored the book Doc Hollywood, which was developed into a film starring Michael J. Fox. The objective in associate producing this film was to encourage youth to consider seeking a career in rural underserved communities.”

  2. He knows how to have fun huh?? 🙂 I am going to look up his books..

    • Yes, I believe he is full of life and knows how to have fun. A very likeable person and of course, a doctor. He has quite a number of books and I’m sure you’ll find one that you like.

  3. Wonderful! What a character!
