24 Hour Medical Director Course (live)
Format: In person (all practitioners)
Location: Scottsdale, AZ
Arizona requires that a medical director supervise the operation of any Class II and above cosmetic laser. In order to be licensed by ARRA/ADHS as a medical director in AZ, doctors/nurse practitioners must complete a 24 hour medical director course from an ARRA/ADHS approved training facility. EALA offers an ARRA/ADHS approved medical director course at our ultra-comfortable Scottsdale training theater. Sit back and relax in our leather recliners while learning laser biophysics, hair and skin histology, laser safety, medical director duties, LSO duties, hair reduction, IPL photofacial and other required training. AZ Attendees are required by ARRA/ADHS to take a 50 question test and pass with an 80% or better score.
From a liability standpoint, if a doctor or NP is going to be lending his/her name and license to a facility as a medical director, he/she can reduce liability by learning the physics of lasers and how to operate them safely in order to effectively supervise laser operators. As an expert witness, Kristin Groop has seen this lack of training come up in laser lawsuits where it was used against the supervising doctor/NP.
This course will also include the 8 hour Laser Safety Officer (LSO) certification, which is needed in Arizona, Florida, Texas and Ohio and other states for cosmetic laser facilities.
The 24 Hour Medical Director course is also available in an online format.
PREREQUISITE: The 24 Hour Medical Director Course is only available to licensed doctors (MD, DO, and NMD) and nurse practitioners.
