LMV places significant value on the contributions of healthcare support professionals [e.g. Physician Assistants (PA), Nurse Practitioners (NP), Registered Nurses (RN)] to our healthcare activities.

Such LMV members may work on any trip (OASIS, Mexico, Latin America) as long as they are supervised by a licensed physician. The supervising licensed physician must be one of the following:

  • Doctor of Medicine (MD),
  • Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO),
  • -or- “pasante”, a physician assigned to the local village.


The supervising licensed physician must be:

  • physically present at the treatment facility,
  • immediately available in person,
  • -or- immediately available by phone.


The supervising physician may be licensed anywhere in the world, except at OASIS where they must be licensed in California.
