Medical Assistant Programs and Jobs in Arizona

According to the Arizona Medical Board, MAs are not licensed on a state level, and national certification is optional. This means you can gain MA experience while on the job. The first step toward employment is obtaining a high school diploma or GED, as most programs and position require either.

The Arizona Medical Board has explicitly defined the types of duties MAs can perform with and without the supervision of a doctor, physician’s assistant, or nurse practitioner. Prospective MAs should acquaint themselves with these scope of practice laws. These are some of the tasks Arizona MAs can perform under the supervision of a nurse or physician:

  • Inject medication
  • Massage therapy
  • Take bodily fluids for lab tests
  • Apply hot and cold pack treatments
  • Apply nerve stimulation treatments

Unsupervised, Arizona MAs can perform tasks related to:

  • Insurance verification
  • Patient appointment scheduling
  • Billing and coding
  • Charting and transcribing
