During the episode my family celebrated my wife's birthday on the beach below.” Gerard Sarnat, MD, received his undergraduate degree at Harvard where he was the editor of the freshman literary magazine The Yardling, his medical degree at Stanford, and did his internal medicine training at Boston's Beth Israel Hospital and Stanford Medical Center.
