Robert Schultz speaks with a resident, and poses for portrait in operating room, at the Durham VA Medical Center.Robert Schultz, although a Jersey boy at heart, presently lives in Raleigh, NC, with his wife, Debbie, and three children. He graduated from Hamilton College in 1969 and, after exploring the world, went on to receive an M.D. degree from Cornell University and completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at Harvard. Now retired from private practice Robert enjoys giving back to the medical profession by serving on the teaching faculty in the department of orthopaedics at Duke University. His book Street Smarts for the Practicing Physician and Surgeon helps serve towards that purpose. He remains a student of existential discovery.

His book, Autobiography of a Baby Boomer, Robert tells the story of his hippy journey between college and medical school.
