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 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.
Note: HRC staff and program activities are currently operating remotely; it is anticipated we will return to the office beginning September 7, 2021 under a hybrid in-person and remote work arrangement.
