Medical Assistant Programs and Jobs in Minnesota

If you want to become a medical assistant (MA) in Minnesota, first earn a high school diploma or GED, as this is the minimum requirement for most positions. MAs can work in the state without certification, but you greatly improve your chances of finding a job if you complete postsecondary work and take a national MA certification exam. While Minnesota doesn’t specifically define the scope of duties for MAs, you can expect your duties to vary according to the healthcare setting you work in, as well as the certification you hold.
