Fingerprint Requirements

Beginning on September 2, 2014, all initial and renewal applicants are required to undergo a criminal background check according to A.R.S. § 32-1422(12) and A.R.S. § 32-1430(E). All initial and renewal applicants will receive a packet from the Board that will detail the steps the applicant must take to comply with the fingerprint process. Please note that the fingerprint card is specific and pre-printed for this Board; therefore, the applicant must use the fingerprint card provided by the Board or fingerprint card FD-258 to include the same pre-printed information within each blue box. Fingerprinting can be done at a local police department, sheriff’s office, or an entity that provides fingerprinting services. The applicant should call the entity that provides the fingerprinting service to confirm their availability and payment requirements. The applicant is required to return the fingerprint card along with a check or money order for $50.00 made out to “Arizona Medical Board” together in the return envelope. The fingerprint technician is required to fill out and date the identity verification form, place the identity verification form with the fingerprint card, seal and sign the envelope flap before returning the fingerprint card to the applicant. If applicant forgets to place the check or money order with the fingerprint card, do not reopen the sealed envelope. The applicant can include the check or money order in a separate envelope attached to the return fingerprint card envelope. Failure to return the sealed envelope with the fingerprint technician’s signature across the envelope flap, the fingerprint card, and identity verification form along with the check or money order will result in the delay in the process of your application.
