PHR Student Program

The Physicians for Human Rights Student Program's mission is to create a community of future leaders committed to ending human rights violations through careers guided by a human rights framework. The Student Program provides medical students and young health professionals with the resources to engage with the larger PHR network to help cultivate skills as advocates for health and human rights locally, nationally, and globally.


Every year, the PHR Student Program hosts a national conference hosted at a medical school in the United States and provides student chapters with an organizational platform for continual grassroots student activism.


Student Advisory Board

The PHR Student Advisory Board (SAB) is a group of medical students that coordinates and oversees the PHR Student Program. By streamlining communication between PHR student chapters and the PHR global headquarters, the SAB aims to build an international movement that advances medical students' training in human rights.
