Refugee Clinic at Penn Center for Primary Care

The Refugee Clinic is a partnership with HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) Pennsylvania, a local rescue, resettlement and assistance agency. Working through translation services, the clinic provides medical care to newly arrived refugees from such countries as Nepal, Eritrea, and Burma, who speak a variety of languages including Nepali, Tigrinya, Chin, and Kachin. Penn internal medicine residents work with attending physicians to carry out physical exams, administer immunizations and arrange for specialty care.
