Foreign physicians and other healthcare professionals who apply to the MAVNI program must get a score of 50 or higher on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB), a test that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success in the military.
Applicants must be able to meet the procurement physical fitness standards of AR 40-501 chapter 2 (PDF). Generally, the purpose of meeting physical fitness standards is to ensure that individuals who are medically qualified are:
- Free of contagious diseases that would likely endanger the health of other personnel.
- Free of medical conditions or physical defects that would require excessive time lost from duty for necessary treatment or hospitalization or would likely result in separation from the Army for medical unfitness.
- Medically capable of satisfactorily completing required training.
- Medically adaptable to the military environment without the necessity of geographical area limitations.
- Medically capable of performing duties without aggravation of existing physical defects or medical conditions.
Affiliation With Foreign Armed Forces
Applicants cannot have a current or remaining affiliation (including reserves and the equivalent of national guard) with another nation's armed forces. If an applicant states that they currently have affiliation with a foreign military, they would be disqualified for enlistment or appointment.
