Dr. Julie Schultz was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. She attended Columbia University in New York City, where she studied Biomedical Engineering, University of Maryland School of Medicine for medical school, and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health for her MPH. Her interests include adolescent medicine, women’s health, population health, and integrative medicine. During medical school, she was selected as an Albert Schweitzer Fellow through which she had the opportunity to create a health curriculum and run health fairs for a local Head Start pre-school and helped build a community garden. Dr. Schultz was also fortunate to work with the Baltimore City Health Department while she was pursuing her MPH, where she worked on a food access program and helped with program evaluation, which helped to reinforce her interest in population health. Dr. Schultz completed her family medicine residency at the Institute’s Mount Sinai Downtown program, which she chose for its strong academics, integrative medicine curriculum, dedication to being a Patient Centered Medical Home, and supportive faculty, administration and residents. Outside of medicine, Dr. Schultz enjoys yoga, cooking with her husband, trying new restaurants, and spending time with her dog Layla.
