Maricopa County Department of Public Health Office of Vital Records

Medical Certifier Resources

Welcome to the MCDPH Office of Vital Registration Medical Certifier resource and information page. We have developed this website to aid you and your staff in preparing the necessary information for a decedent’s death certificate. The site is divided into four tabs: Communication, Training & Handbooks, Forms, and Statute & Rules.

  • The Communication tab contains pertinent letters and other communication from government agencies.

  • The Training & Handbooks tab contains resource links from the CDC. Additional training resources will be added at a later date.

  • The Statutes & Rules tab contains searchable PDFs of both Arizona Vital Records’ Statutes and Rules related to death.

Thank you for your dedication and willingness to provide your medical expertise. Your efforts will benefit the overall health of our community for years to come!

If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact us at 602-372-0535 Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm.
