  • 3. • In the state of California, medical assistants are unlicensed, and thus may only perform basic administrative, clerical and technical supportive services as permitted by law. They may administer medications intradermally, subcutaneously, or intramuscularly, perform skin tests, and other technical supportive services after specific authorization and under supervision of a licensed physician or podiatrist. They may apply and remove bandages and dressings, remove sutures, perform ear lavage, prepare patients for examinations, and shave and disinfect treatment sites.http://medicalassistanthq.net
