Medical Assistant Programs and Jobs in Iowa

Medical assistants (MAs) in Iowa can legally work without certification, but it may be difficult to find a position, since the majority of healthcare providers require it. The most common, and useful, certificate in Iowa is a CMA. Iowa doesn’t directly define the role an MA plays in a healthcare setting, and responsibilities vary according to your certification type.
