PHR's International Forensic Program offers an online course in forensic investigation. This is a resource for those new to the field, especially in countries where training is not available, and is a self-guided course provided free of charge by PHR. The course modules were developed by PHR staff and other forensic experts experienced in the assessment, planning, and implementation of human rights forensic projects, including the investigation of mass graves.
The IFP also offers annual courses in Crime Scene and Evidence Documentation, and Forensic Laboratory Services and Medical Examiners' Office Operations.
PHR’s National Student Program for health professional students offers understanding of and lifelong commitment to human rights activism. Students cultivate their unique contributions as advocates for human rights locally, nationally, and globally.
