Downstate Asylum Clinic

Thousands of refugees journey to New York City every year to seek asylum from persecution, violence, torture, and war. For them, asylum status is a doorway into a new life, and critical to avoid deportation. Physicians and residents have the power to double the chances of asylum approval by conducting physical exams that document evidence of these past psychological or physical traumas for use in asylum court.
