Immigration and Refugee Clinic

The care of refugee children poses a difficult task to health care providers at all levels. Access to medical care is limited and frequently refugee children and their families struggle with their initial health care needs.

The Immigration and Refugee Clinic provides a comprehensive approach to all refugee children to help them adjust to their new environment in adequate health performing the recommended screening and assessing their general status. These services are provided in addition to the mandatory medical examination required by law to all refugees.
