Medical assistants (MAs) in Kansas are not required to earn a certification in order to be employed. Kansas also does not have a state-specific society for MAs, nor does it identify particular duties for MAs in the state. Instead, Kansas health care officials look to the national AAMA to define an MA’s responsibilities.

- American Association of Medical Assistants: Because Kansas doesn't have its own society of medical assistants, MAs in the state should get in touch with the AAMA if they have questions about certification or education.
- Kansas Board of Healing Arts: The state medical board oversees licensure and regulations among healthcare providers.
