The first step to becoming a medical assistant (MA) in Maine is to earn your high school diploma or GED. Beyond that, it’s helpful to complete an educational program specific to MA. While Maine doesn’t require that MAs be certified, the right one will greatly improve your employment prospects.
As an MA in Maine, your tasks will vary depending on whether you are in a hospital, clinic, or other health care setting; in all of those, you are expected to help doctors and nurses with both medical and administrative duties. Maine does not define specific duties, or restrictions on duties, for its MAs.
