Program Assistant Intern, Human Rights Clinic

The Human Rights Clinic (HRC) is the U.S. program of HealthRight International, currently serving the New York metro area. The HRC recruits, trains, and deploys licensed health care professionals (e.g., physicians, psychologists, clinical social workers) to provide expert forensic evaluations, affidavits, and testimony on behalf of immigrant survivors of torture and other human rights abuses in their applications for immigration relief. The HRC project model also includes a follow-up case management component to connect survivors with needed resources in their communities. The HRC is seeking a Program Assistant intern who will serve as a critical member of its team in NY. This internship offers an excellent opportunity to gain unique knowledge and experience in cross-cutting issues related to human rights, immigration law, medicine, mental health, social work, as well as nonprofit management.
