Arizona Regulatory Board of Physician Assistants

 

The Arizona Regulatory Board of Physician Assistants (ARBoPA) licenses and regulates over 1,000 physician assistants in Arizona. As the utilization of physician extenders, such as physician assistants, continually increases, the Arizona Regulatory Board of Physician Assistants stays in touch with community needs and implements health care policy reforms to protect the public and provide guidance to its licensees. Within the last few years, the Board has systematically revised its laws and rules to stay ahead of healthcare trends. More importantly, ARBoPA has established a proven track record for consistent and fair actions, making it one of the leading regulatory boards in the nation.
