  • Active medical/nursing license or registration
  • Available copies of all relevant diplomas and certificates
  • Board certification or equivalency in country of primary practice
  • Active hospital privileges (for programmes that involve direct patient care)
  • Two references from current or previous Orbis volunteer faculty
