Ghazal is an F1-Doctors co-founder and the organization's first Director of Operations. She is is an Iranian/Canadian medical student at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. She received her B.S. in Neuroscience from Brown University. During her time as an undergraduate student, she worked as a peer career advisor (PCA) at Brown CareerLAB. As a PCA, she focused on amplifying support and mentorship for international students wanting to work in the United States. She started medical school immediately after graduation, applying through the traditional route.
During medical school, Ghazal's petition for Green-Card was approved through the EB1A program for extraordinary ability in the sciences (also known as the "Einstein Visa"). Talk to Ghazal about going to medical school directly post-grad, visa options/work authorization, building a support system away from home (especially as an only child), or anything else about life in general!
