Hamolsky, Brown medicine leader, dies

Posted 1/27/14

Dr. Milton Hamolsky, whose work led to the founding of Brown’s Warren Alpert Medical School, died Saturday, Jan. 18, at the age of 92.

Hamolsky, professor emeritus of medical science, died at the Philip Hulitar Inpatient Center in Providence. He was a leader and innovator among his colleagues in Rhode Island since coming to the state in the 1960s, Hamolsky excelled in teaching and research.

He was instrumental in helping develop the Master of Medical Science degree program at Brown, a major step toward creation of the University’s medical school. He continued to relish his role as a teacher until he died.

Among Hamolsky’s research accomplishments was his discovery in 1959 of the T3 uptake test, which is still in use today, as a means of measuring thyroid hormone levels.

As a leader in clinical practice, Hamolsky was the first full-time physician-in-chief at Rhode Island Hospital and a member of the board of directors of Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island. He was also known for his dedication to patients, including those who were terminally ill.
