You will first need to apply for temporary or permanent residency in Costa Rica, you will also be required to apply and get permission to practice medicine at the Costarrican Medical Association.
The documents you will need from your country are Diplomas, Certificates, birth certificate, background police certificate, the rest of the documents and process is done in Costa Rica with an Attorney.

For Residency, there is no preference on occupation, just the minimum amount of income being received in a permanent, stable and continuous manner.
