About the Speaker
A New Jersey native, Dr. Ruth Schulze was born in Jersey City and raised in Bergen County. She was a Phi Beta Kappa scholar at Union College in Schenectady, New York. After graduating summa cum laude with B.S. in Biology in 1979, she attended medical school at SUNY Stony Brook and completed her residency at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, MA.
Dr. Schulze’s commitment to organized medicine began with the Bergen County Medical Society where she eventually became an officer and in 2002-2003, President. The position and the concurrent medical malpractice crisis introduced her to New Jersey politics and MSNJ. She was elected to the Board of Trustees in 2003 then served a 6 year term as Secretary, followed by the offices of 2nd and 1st Vice President, President Elect and President from 2013 to 2014.
During this time frame, Dr. Schulze has also been actively engaged in hospital politics. She became the first female president of The Valley Hospital medical staff in 2010 after serving on the medical executive committee for seven years. From 2008 to 2010, she served as Associate Director of Valley’s Ob/Gyn Department. In 2010 Dr. Schulze became Department Director and in 2012 she was elected for another four year term.
