Saltz worked toward her degree in Psychiatry, she did her residency in Internal Medicine and Psychiatry at Cornell-Weill School of Medicine and The New York Presbyterian Hospital.
She explained, "I became particularly interested in the impact that illness had on the mind" and went on to do a fellowship in treating sexual dysfunction - a topic that she says was rather taboo at the time.
Since illness has such a broad impact on an individual's life, medical and mental health professionals tend to just focus on the disease itself rather than the impact it could have on a person's sexuality and intimate relationships. Saltz explained, "The topic always ends up at the bottom of the priority list.
How illness impacts sex was very important to me and I began doing a lot of couples work as well as individual work...there are many people who don't currently have a partner who still need to feel good about themselves as a sexual being."Between keeping appointments with doctors, filling prescriptions, sticking to a medical regimen, and getting enough rest, coping with illness can feel like a full-time career.
