2021 Human Rights Clinic Virtual Training

In collaboration with Adelphi University, HealthRight International’s Human Rights Clinic (HRC) will be holding a virtual training this fall for new volunteer clinicians.

The Human Rights Clinic trains and deploys volunteer physicians and mental health professionals to provide clinical evaluations for survivors of torture, abuse, and neglect seeking immigration relief in the United States. We serve immigrant children, adolescents, and adults seeking protection in the NY metro area.

When: 11/6/2021, 9:00am – 3:30pm
Where: Zoom (more details upon registration)


This training is open to:

  • Licensed physicians*
