A high school diploma or equivalent is required.

This training must be documented and a physician or other qualified teacher, as identified by the Medical Board of California, must certify in writing that the Medical Assistant has completed the training successfully. CSU-specific requirements are as follows:
1. Most commonly, incumbents are required to possess a certificate of completion from an accredited and approved medical assisting program through the Department of Education or Bureau of Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education within the Department of Consumer Affairs. In this case, the supervising CSU physician must verify competencies.
2. At the discretion of the Student Health Center director, an in-house campus-training program may be developed according to the guidelines established by the Medical Board of California. In this case, a CSU physician must document and certify in writing that the formal training and clinical practice hours required by the Medical Board of California to perform the duties of a Medical Assistant have been completed successfully.
