The Forensic Medical Evaluation Group (FMEG) is a service for asylum seekers and others requiring documentation of prior ill treatment. This innovative program is part of the Department of Medicine, the School of Public Health and GLP. It was cofounded in 2012 and is co-directed by Sondra Crosby and Elizabeth Rourke. FMEG offers evaluation and documentation of physical and psychological evidence of torture and abuse in a supportive and collaborative environment while working closely with attorneys. In addition to performing medical evaluations, FMEG is actively involved in academic work, including scholarly publications and advancing the field of torture documentation. FMEG teaches students (medical, law, and public health), medical residents, physicians, lawyers, and judges.
