medical students

We are always looking for passionate medical students who are interested in dedicating their time to our cause.

Our student volunteers work with our volunteer physicians to coordinate each client’s evaluation. Students are also present during the evaluation, help to craft the final affidavit in support of the client’s asylum application, and provide each client with information on health coverage and community clinic access.

To become a volunteer, students should contact our leadership at


We are actively seeking physicians to perform medical evaluations and mental health clinicians to perform psychological evaluations. We currently prefer individuals who have already attended a Physicians for Human Rights training. The KHRC will provide clinicians with refresher training sessions and technical support as needed.    

We ask our volunteers to commit to 2-3 evaluations each year. The evaluations can take place at your clinical site, or at our offices. The KHRC will assist with the logistical coordination to help schedule each client. Prior to the exam, clinicians will be provided with each client's declaration and asylum application as well as the attorney contact information. 

If you are interested in volunteering with us, please fill out our clinician intake form. For more information, please refer to our FAQs
