She received a B.S. in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology and a B.A. in Chemistry from Emory University in 2019.
During medical school, Greti was the president and one of the coordinators of a student run mental health clinic for underserved populations and refugees.

For fun Greti likes to go to ballroom dancing, tending to her plants, cooking Turkish food, and playing with her cat.
Talk to Greti about preparing for medical school or residency and applications in general, always being told “you can’t do it, because you are international”, shadowing physicians, navigating life in the U.S. as an international student, or anything else that is on your mind as an international applicant!
