Correct constructions of require are:
1) require that X Y
2) require X to Y
Almost everything is correct in A, but the "to be protected" destroys everything. It should rather be " to protect".
B and C are unidiomatic. C distorts the meaning too.
D is again unidiomatic.
E follows the rules and hence is the answer.

The difference between answers A and E is that the first includes the active verb form "to protect" at the end of the underlined part whereas answer E uses the passive form "to be protected." We need to use the passive because this part of the clause does not include the information who should be protected. If we use the active form, we need an object. In choice E we can see that it is "doctors" who require a minimum ... to be protected."
