Brown Human Rights Asylum Clinic-PHR Asylum Network Fall 2019 Training
The Brown Human Rights Asylum Clinic (BHRAC), in partnership with Physicians for Human Rights (PHR), invites you to our annual PHR Asylum Network Training on Saturday, September 12th, 2020. The training is open to clinicians at all levels of training, psychologists, LCSWs, LMHC's, and medical students.
The training will be led by expert PHR-trained clinicians and attorneys who specialize in immigration law, and will address:
> Conducting psychological and physical forensic evaluations
> Writing effective medicolegal affidavits
> Understanding asylum law
You must complete this one-time training in order to volunteer through BHRAC. Upon completing this training, you will join the Physician for Human Rights national Asylum Network.
About BHRAC/PHR: For those of you unfamiliar with BHRAC’s work, our role is to provide medical/psychological evaluations to individuals seeking asylum and other immigration visas in the United States, due to trauma and persecution they faced in their home countries. Affidavits can document and corroborate the physical and psychological evidence of trauma alleged by asylum seekers, leading to better legal outcomes. On the national level, PHR’s Asylum Network consists of over 500 health professionals conducting this pro bono work throughout the U.S.

This training is typically a very full day in-person. Due to COVID-19, however, we will be shifting to a virtual training that will include live sessions over Zoom and approximately two hours of pre-recorded presentations that must be viewed in order to complete the training. It's our hope that shifting some lectures to recordings will make for a more engaging, less exhausting day over Zoom.
The beginning of the live session will include a Q&A portion with the presenters from the recordings. More details will be provided to those who register.
Live Zoom Session Time:
9:30am - 12:30pm Medical Evaluators
9:30 am - 11:15 am Medical Student Scribes
We look forward to seeing you on September 12th! If you have any questions, please email us at
