The Lawful Scope of Practice of Medical Assistants – 2012 Update

The AMT office frequently receives inquiries from Registered Medical Assistants about the lawful extent of their clinical practice scope. In the June 2012 issue of AMT Events, Michael N. McCarty, Esq., AMT’s legal council, authored an article entitled “The Lawful Scope of Practice of Medical Assistants – 2012 Update.” The article contains a survey of the various states’ laws affecting the authority of physicians and other licensed practitioners to delegate clinical tasks (particularly injections) to medical assistants. The article updated a similar but less exhaustive one that was published in 2003. This article can be a valuable reference to MAs and their employers who aren’t already familiar with the laws and regulations governing medical assisting in their particular states. (Download)
