Become a Volunteer Scribe
We will be hosting a medical student training on Tuesday, October 16th at 7pm. At this event, we will introduce medical students in Philadelphia to the process of seeking asylum, and the important role that medical affidavits serve in documenting evidence of persecution.
Upon completing this training, students will be eligible to volunteer with our clinic. As volunteer scribes, medical students take notes during forensic evaluations and then write a first draft of the affidavit. The evaluating clinician will then edit and finalize the draft in a final version that will serve as evidence in immigration court.
