The Upper Valley Human Rights Clinic connects clients with volunteer clinicians who perform pro bono forensic medical and psychological evaluations.
We are always looking for interested clinicians and trainees (residents, fellows, and medical students) to be a part of our evaluation teams. Physicians trained in any specialty may serve as evaluators. Past asylum evaluators have been trained in internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, emergency medicine, OB/GYN, adult psychiatry, and child and adolescent psychiatry.
Our team will reach out to our network as we receive cases from PHR or our legal partners. We match clinicians to cases based on availability, specialty, client gender preference, etc. A medical student is assigned to each case to aid in documentation during the evaluation and drafting of the affidavit.
If you are interested in working with us, please fill out this form.
Qualified interpreters serve an integral role during forensic evaluations for clients who prefer a language other than English. If you have worked as a medical interpreter in a language other than English and are interested in volunteering with our clinic, please let us know by filling out this form.
Our work would not be possible without close collaboration with attorneys and legal aid groups. If you are interested in partnering with our clinic, training clinicians, or leading workshops on affidavit writing, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or filling out this form.
