Direct Primary Care Doctor
Dr. Marty Schulman graduated from UC Berkeley in 1981 and the UC San Diego School of Medicine in 1985. He completed his hometown’s Long Beach Memorial Family Medicine Residency Program in 1988. He worked as an associate in a small family medicine practice in Encinitas, California before being hired in 1990 to fill a clinical faculty position at UC San Diego. In addition to teaching students and residents, he became the medical director of his clinic site and later served as the clinical service chief for the division of family medicine. He was one of two family medicine faculty members chosen for the inaugural class of UC San Diego’s Academy of Clinician Scholars. In 2005, Dr. Schulman opened Encinitas Personal Healthcare, Inc. after deciding that he wanted to provide concierge-style medical care at a reasonable cost to patients. To do so, he created a practice model combining low annual fees with low overhead. Opting out of Medicare and having no insurance contracts allowed for him to be paid a reasonable non-discounted fee in full at the time of service. For thirteen years, Dr. Schulman incorporated travel medicine into his solo practice. For the last twelve years, he has served as the medical consultant for a six-bed residential treatment center for eating disorders patients. He has also maintained his relationship with UC San Diego through his hospital medical staff affiliation and work as part of the physician assessment teams at the PACE Program and the Physician Retraining and Reentry Program.
