To become a medical assistant (MA) in Wyoming, you must first earn a high school diploma or GED. Wyoming does not require active MAs to hold an MA-specific certification or degree. Nonetheless, Wyoming’s employers will tend to favor certified MAs or MAs with an associate degree in the field.
Wyoming does not define the scope of responsibilities for MAs, but most MAs in the state are work under the supervision of physicians and nurses in clinical and administrative settings. The complexity of an MA’s duties will depend on education, certification level, and the facility you work in.
