Education and Training

We are investing more time and resources into training the next generation of leaders on asylum and immigrant health. Our goals include:

  • Lead an asylum ective for medical students at UCSF
  • Host yearly training programs for physicians, nurse practitioners, psychologists, social workers, health professional students, attorneys, and interpreters.
  • Mentor a cohort of individuals in family medicine, psychiatry and pediatrics to conduct asylum evaluations.
  • Develop forensic briefs which provide the latest evidence on common forms of ill-treatment and torture
  • Establish one medical student and one postgraduate fellowship in asylum and immigration health
