Despite the high level of training and expertise required to become a CRNA, the road to becoming an anesthesiologist is unchanged from the one facing anyone else. The CRNA would have to apply to and be accepted by a medical school. After four years and graduation with either an M.D. or D.O. degree, the new physician would have to complete a residency (four years) in anesthesiology, at which point, he or she would be an anesthesiologist.
