Dr. Kranz completed post-baccalaureate studies at Goucher College in 2003 and returned to her undergraduate alma mater, Brown University, for medical school. During medical school, she was thrilled to discover family medicine as she is most interested in caring for whole people, families, and communities. University of Rochester's family medicine department was a perfect fit for residency with its excellent psychosocial/behavioral health curriculum and collaborative practice environment. After serving as chief resident, she joined the faculty in 2011 with a focus on teaching in the psychosocial medicine curriculum. She became a Fellow of the European Committee on Sexual Medicine in 2018 and has pursued additional training in sexual medicine through the European Society of Sexual Medicine, the International Society for the Study of Women's Sexual Health, and the American Association of Sexuality Counselors Educators and Therapists. Sexual medicine, simply put, addresses the sexual aspects of medical issues and the medical aspects of sexual issues. In addition to clinical work in sexual medicine she teaches physicians, mental health professionals and community members about sexual medicine.
