Primary Source Verification


What is primary source verification?

Primary source verification (PSV) is the process of checking the educational background, training, experience as well as other credentials of all healthcare practitioners applying for registration and licensing in both the private and public healthcare sectors in the State of Qatar. This assures the regulators that all healthcare practitioners’ credentials are verified as genuine thus, ensuring safe and effective professional practice in the State of Qatar.

Primary source verification (PSV) means that those applicants who present false or misleading credentials are discovered early and prevented from practicing. It also allows Qatar Council for Healthcare Practitioners (QCHP) to warn other registration authorities of fraudulent applicants.

The ultimate goal of QCHP is to protect the health, safety, welfare of the public and will not risk the safety of the public by allowing a person to practice before the results of the verification process are known, in addition to, ensuring validity and safety of the services provided to citizens and residents of the State of Qatar.

“Dataflow” and “Gulf Bridge Services” are considered to be the approved service providers from QCHP to conduct the primary source verification process to all documents of healthcare practitioners as one of the mandatory requirements for registration and licensing to work in the State of Qatar.

It is essential for all Healthcare Practitioners to apply for the verification process before applying for registration/ evaluation to the registration department- QCHP and attach the dataflow payment receipt to the electronic registration/evaluation application.
