Medical Safe Haven

“Replicating this type of medical safe haven model within a residency program in primary care has the potential to provide widespread care across the country, at a relatively low cost. It concurrently trains our future physician workforce to appropriately identify, respond to and longitudinally care for this vulnerable patient population."

Resources for Residency Programs and Physicians

We have created a number of resources to support the establishment of a Human Trafficking Medical Safe Haven for those who have experienced human trafficking, sex and/or labor. These resources are survivor informed, and useful as peer guidance for physician training in understanding human trafficking and trauma-informed care.

The Human Trafficking Medical Safe Haven program model is based upon long term, integrated care for survivors, within a Family Medicine Residency. The Human Trafficking Medical Safe Haven program can be adapted for diverse clinical environments.
