Hi everyone! My name is Busra Gungor and I’m a rising junior in the College of Arts and Sciences. I am majoring in Biological Basis of Behavior and minoring in Health Services Management in Wharton. I live in Nashville, TN and was born in Turkey. This will be my first international trip to another country besides Turkey so I’m extremely excited!
In a few days (ahh), I will be starting my internship at Aravind in Madurai along with Olivia and Vivek. I’ve heard so many amazing things about Aravind, from there phenomenal efficiency and high quality of care to their aim to provide affordable health care to all socioeconomic classes. I personally am really intrigued in their business model and would like to use this internship to explore that aspect of health care. As someone interested in global health, I can’t wait to learn from and watch how physicians practice medicine in rural India.
As many of you probably have heard, Bill and I had an adventurous day yesterday. From running around airports to securing our luggage, it was quite the experience haha. We are currently at JFK and almost on our flight to Delhi! We are so pumped to finally begin our 10 week journey in India. Can’t wait to see everyone tomorrow at the ice cream social 🙂
More updates/adventures to come!
