Mission: The NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine Student Chapter of Physicians for Human Rights aims to disseminate, defend and strengthen the precepts of medical ethics. To this end, we educate fellow students and colleagues about human rights abuses, torture, the failings and successes of public health policies, and everyday moral problems faced by physicians. We also engage in fundraising for organizations that share our vision.
