Leader in Medicine

Shana Shoulson


The American Health Council recently welcomed Family Physician, Dr. Shana Shoulson as “Best in Medicine.”

Dr. Shoulson’s successful career in the healthcare industry for twenty years has recently culminated in a position under the Robert Wood Johnson Physician Enterprise (RWJPE).

The RWJPE is a prestigious institute of highly skilled physicians and backed by the RWJ Barnabas Health System, the largest health system in New Jersey. It offers a range of Urgent and Primary care practices alongside specialists in areas such as Cardiology, OB/GYN, Orthopedics, Gastroenterology, Neurology, Sleep Medicine, Pulmonary Care and Urology.

As a specialist in Family Medicine, Dr. Shoulson completed her undergraduate studies and obtained her BA from Barnard College. Thereafter Dr. Shoulson completed her first two years of Medical School at the University of Pittsburgh and finished her last two years of Medical School at Robert Wood Johnson Rutgers Medical School. This was followed by a residency at the Hunterdon Medical Center.

On a day to day basis, Dr. Shoulson meets the diverse medical needs of children and families, taking pride in the level of care she provides her patients, particularly the ability to listen and build fantastic patient rapport. Aspiring to follow this career path from a young age, she believes that her love for this profession has led to her success.

Her professional accolades include attaining a New Jersey State Medical License, inclusion on the American Board of Family Medicine and associations with both the American Academy of Family Physicians and the New Jersey Women’s Medical Association. Yet, perhaps most touching and incredible of all her achievements, the Community of Lakewood (New Jersey) honored her by appointing a Dr. Shoulson Day.

Within the next five years, Dr. Shoulson will strive to grow her practice under the Robert Wood Johnson umbrella and continue her work on the QI committee.

Outside of medicine however, she enjoys crocheting, relaxing with her husband and two sons and volunteering in her local community.
