Dr. Schultz on…

  • Education/Patient Care
    “Excellent teachers at three universities and several hospitals were the foundation for my medical education. They taught compassion and care delivered through a disciplined and dedicated mastery of the knowledge and skills necessary to practice good medicine. Using these skills to help patients is by far the most rewarding part of dermatology.”
  • Teaching
    “Teaching is just a natural extension of such an academically rigorous profession as medicine. The mental stimulation from interacting with medical students, residents, and other attending physicians is irreplaceable.”
  • Research & Writing
    “There is nothing we do in medicine that could not be done better. Looking for new treatments or diagnostic techniques is not only necessary, but exhilarating.”
