Please keep tuned for another training in the fall!


Thank you for your interest in working with the GUSOM Asylum Clinic!

The basic goal of the Asylum Clinic is for volunteer clinicians to perform a comprehensive physical or psychological evaluation of U.S. asylum seekers and to submit an affidavit to support their case in the immigration court. This process can drastically improve the chances of a survivor of human rights abuses in obtaining legal status in the U.S. For more information, visit phrgeorgetown.org or email gusomphr@georgetown.edu.

Medical students are trained in order to assist the evaluations. They are paired up with a clinician and help draft the affidavit as well as scribe or assist the physician on the day of the evaluation.



In order to work with asylum seekers, physician and student volunteers must attend a training workshop. Our next workshop is scheduled for 4/13/19 from 9 AM - 4 PM at the New Research Building at Georgetown University. 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 will cover food and material costs. Registration for clinicians will cover their registration with PHR, materials, and food for the day.
