Philadelphia Human Rights Clinic

The Philadelphia Human Rights Clinic (PHRC) is a collaboration between UPenn, Jefferson, and Drexel schools of medicine. The clinic functions primarily to coordinate medical evaluations for asylum seekers. Physician volunteers write an affidavit based on this evaluation, which serves as powerful evidence in immigration court. Medical student volunteers serve as scribes during the evaluations and write the first draft of the affidavit. We also host a monthly speaker series featuring doctors and community leaders who work with the refugee population.
