The Immigrant & Refugee Health Program provides comprehensive primary care services to immigrant and refugee patients through our practice at the Shapiro Center at Boston Medical Center. The team of clinicians takes care of general healthcare needs through regular check-ups, immunizations, and screenings, as well as providing care for illnesses and injuries. Also, if needed, the team will coordinate patient care with specialist for a more serious health issue.
Foreign and sign language interpreters are available to help patients communicate with the staff. The practice provides on-site interpreters and over the phone interpreters for more than 30 languages. If a patient needs an interpreter, they should tell a member of the staff when schedule an appointment. Also, the Program offers access to psychiatric and case management support to provide support and care for the wide range of needs of patients.
