Through collaboration with Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) and Columbia Law, the Human Rights Initiative (HRI) links volunteer physicians (including fellows), psychologists, and licensed clinical social workers to individuals seeking asylum in the United States. Asylum seekers seen in the clinic have included individuals fleeing persecution due to LGBTQ status, domestic abuse, torture and other forms of discrimination.
No experience is necessary. HRI will organize and pay for your half-day training covering asylum law, the health professional's role, and the evaluation procedure. Three CME credits awarded.
