Minimum requirements include current active unrestricted licensure as a physician in one or more states, and a current active DEA registration. Board certification or qualification in a primary care specialty—Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Preventive Medicine or Emergency medicine—is desired; or, board certification in Psychiatry. Candidates must be available to serve world-wide.

All applicants must successfully complete a thorough medical and psychological exam, a polygraph interview and an extensive background investigation. US citizenship is required.
To be considered suitable for Agency employment, applicants must generally not have used illegal drugs within the last twelve months. The issue of illegal drug use prior to twelve months ago is carefully evaluated during the medical and security processing.

Important Notice: Friends, family, individuals, or organizations may be interested to learn that you are an applicant for or an employee of the CIA. Their interest, however, may not be benign or in your best interest. You cannot control whom they would tell. We therefore ask you to exercise discretion and good judgment in disclosing your interest in a position with the Agency. You will receive further guidance on this topic as you proceed through your CIA employment processing.
