Get to Know Me

Dr. Corinna L. Schultz is a pediatric hematologist/oncologist and an assistant professor at Sidney Kimmel Medical College. She's an invited lecturer, presenter, published medical journal author, active researcher, and member of multiple medical societies, serving on a national committee of the Children's Oncology Group.

Why I Treat Children

Even before medical school, I knew I wanted to work with children. Then I did my pediatric rotation and that sealed it! I love being around children and teens. They make everything better. It is amazing how a child who is dealing with an illness still finds a way to smile. I see the way kids don't let anything stop them, even cancer. It's inspiring. The reason I chose hematology and oncology is that they combine everything I love about medicine and find the most interesting. For me, it's the perfect blend of primary care, critical care, and specialty medicine. I love that it's multidisciplinary and that the field is progressing so quickly — with developments in new medications for sickle cell disease and hemophilia and new disease cures like gene therapy coming soon. It's an exciting time to be a hematology and oncology specialist.

What I'm Passionate About

I'm passionate about taking care of kids, educating and communicating with children, families and medical professionals about hematology, and advancing health and health care through health services research to improve the way that we (within medicine, in general, and our hospital, in particular) deliver hematology and oncology care. My medical interests include: Sickle cell disease Sickle cell trait Other hemoglobin traits Bleeding disorders such as Hemophilia and von Willebrand disease Clotting disorders Iron deficiency anemia Patient portals Patient-physician communication  

How I Try to Make A Difference

I try to make a difference in every care setting I find myself in. I try to be exceptionally present for my patients and their families, and make sure they get their questions answered. I worked with the adult hematologists at Wilmington Hospital to create the first federally funded Hemophilia Treatment Center to care for children in Delaware with bleeding and clotting disorders. I also enjoy being active within the hospital, serving on specific groups and committees such as the Ethics Committee, Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, and Pediatric Clinical Competency Committee. I feel it's important to be active within the hospital and the field to ensure we're providing the highest quality and safest care possible. I also work to make a difference by doing research within my specialty and in healthcare delivery.
