New for 2018: Health Ministry of Nicaragua is now requiring this CV form
to accompany all other documentation. They prefer to have a one page CV. It is formatted so you can fill it in, then save it to your computer and send via e-mail as an attachment.
Here are some updates for our Mission, which Cristo Sana will help process for you:
Health Ministry Requirements – Our trips will now have a 2-part process to be approved for our mission. The first is to be approved by the First Lady of Nicaragua and the second by Health Ministry. So that we can comply with the regulations, all documentation is to be in the Christ the Healer office 2 months prior to each trip. Documents include: Diploma, current Medical license, American Board certificate with updates/renewals, Curriculum Vitae, and Flight itinerary. Also, any list of medicines or supplies in which you plan to bring with you for patients.
