Physicians for Human Rights

PHR serves as a forum to bring together medical students interested in advocating for human rights.

This organization is the UB medical school chapter of our parent organization, Physicians for Human Rights. It promotes student education through lunch lectures, small group discussions and training with a focus on three subjects:

  • Racial and ethnic health disparities
  • Women’s rights
  • Human trafficking

They also collaborate with community organizations and participate in area health fairs.

Lectures and discussions on health and human rights issues give members the knowledge and skills to provide equal care to all, promoting excellent service to the community and improved physician-patient interactions.

Who Can Participate?

Both undergraduates and students pursuing MDs are welcome at the organization’s events.
