Medical Assistant Programs and Jobs in Wisconsin

Unlike many states, Wisconsin doesn’t specifically define the scope of responsibilities for medical assistants and does not require MAs to earn formal licensing to work in the state. As a result, the range of responsibilities for MAs in Wisconsin can vary. State law leaves delegation of clinical assistance tasks up supervising physicians, podiatrists and nursing professionals.

Wisconsin students who want to work as medical assistants should first obtain a high school diploma or GED. And while it is not a requirement in Wisconsin, earning a national CMA credential from the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA) will improve an MA candidate’s prospects in this state.
