Event description

Description

Thank you for your interest in working with the GUSOM Asylum Clinic! The basic goal of the Asylum Clinic is to pair clinicians and students to meet with an asylum seeker, perform a comprehensive physical or psychological evaluation, and submit an affidavit to support their case in immigration court. This process can drastically improve the chances of a survivor of human rights abuses obtaining legal status in the US. For more information, visit phrgeorgetown.org or email gusomphr@georgetown.edu.

In order to work with asylum seekers, volunteers must attend a training workshop. Our next workshop is scheduled for 10/22/17 from 9 AM - 4 PM. It will cover topics like Asylum Law, Practical Tips for Working with Asylum-Seekers, Physical Evaluation, Psychological Evaluations, and Best Practices for Writing Affidavits.

The workshop includes coffee, breakfast and lunch, and materials. Registration for students is $10 to cover costs.

Paid parking is available at the Georgetown University Hospital Emergency Entrance. Limited street parking is available along reservoir road, but be sure to read parking signs! Alternatively, the D6 bus runs directly past the medical school on 38th St & Reservoir Road, and the GUTS shuttle runs from Dupont Circle to Georgetown.
