All requests for evaluations with WCCHR must be made through their partner organization, Physicians for Human Rights. If you or your client requires an evaluation and an affidavit, complete and submit the forensic evaluation request form (or it can also be found on the Physicians for Human Rights website). On the top of the form and in the "Details of the Case" box, indicate in capital letters that you would like for your client to be seen by the Weill Cornell Center for Human Rights. WCCHR will do their best to accommodate your request as fast as possible. In the event that WCCHR is unable to take the case, PHR may be able to assign it to another physician within their network. Note: It can take up to four months from the time the initial application is submitted to the time the final medical affidavit is complete. Allow plenty of time to ensure that this process runs smoothly.
