Provide Forensic Medical Evaluations
SURVIVORS is seeking Licensed Physicians
Learn More About the Process
SURVIVORS recruits pro-bono volunteer physicians committed to our mission to “facilitate the healing of torture survivors and their families; educate professionals and the public about torture and its consequences; and advocate for torture survivors and the abolition of torture.”
Referrals are completed by attorneys. If the request a medical evaluation for their client’s asylum case, SURVOVORS’ medical case manager will schedule the client to come to our healing center for their evaluation and will serve as the main form of communication between the client and physician, as well as between the physician and attorney.
Many torture survivors in the United States seek asylum in fearing torture if returned to their home countries. It is important to document the physical consequences of torture as part of the case presented to immigration offices and judges. SURVIVORS’ pro-bono volunteer physicians accept these clients to conduct a medical evaluation, prepare a written report for submission to the court, and, if indicated, appear in court to provide testimony about their findings. Interpreters are provided for each client if needed.
