PHR's Asylum Program is Conducting a Fall Training Session

Registration Now Open!

Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) is currently collaborating with students and faculty at Georgetown University School of Medicine and George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences to launch a medical student-run asylum clinic that will be dedicated to providing forensic evaluations and other services for asylum seekers. This training is designed for affiliated faculty who are interested in getting involved with this effort, and offers a reduced registration rate.

In this training, seasoned forensic medical evaluators and legal experts will provide health professionals with the skills necessary to document evidence of torture and other human rights abuses for people fleeing persecution. These physical and psychological evaluations can help survivors rebuild their lives safely in the United States.

Space is limited; reserve your spot today.
