In order to become an anesthesiologist, you of course must go to medical school and get your MD or DO degree first. This generally requires an undergraduate degree in a science related field such as Biology or chemistry. Career experience as a nurse, a paramedic, a pharmacist, etc. is also helpful. You must have a great ability to multi-task and attention to small details is essential. This job has been described as "Hours and hours of sheer boredom interspersed with a few seconds of stark terror!" A high grade point average in college is essential for admission to medical school as well as high scores on the Medical College Admissions Test, also a recommendation from a physician affiliated with the medical school is also helpful. Afer graduation from medical school you must be accepted into a Residency program which you must complete and then pass an exam for Board Certification in Anesthesia.TACO MC.FACO WAS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:DAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Information on becoming an anesthesiologist?

An anesthesiologist is an individual who gives anesthetics to an individual during surgery. The anesthesiologist is responsible for determining how much anesthetics a person can be given and, since the patient needs to be watched closely, they are also responsible for monitoring the patient during surgery. While monitoring a patient, the anesthesiologist must also consult the doctor during the surgery on how well the patient is handling the anesthetics. Becoming an anesthesiologist can be an excellent career path. An anesthesiologist tends to be extremely well paid, and often are not subject to the same level of stress and demand as doctors. While it can be a very rewarding career path, both financially and personally, becoming an anesthesiologist is quite difficult and takes years to accomplish. To become an anesthesiologist, a person will need to follow a similar educational progression as a medical doctor, physician, or surgeon. After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in either pre-med, or a related science, a prospective anesthesiologist will need to attend medical school, where they will get a very general medical degree program. Towards the end of medical school, a person should look into getting into an anesthesiology residency program. Typically, a residency program will take 4 years, but a specialized anesthesiology program will often take an additional 2 or 3 years. Between medical school and the residency program, an anesthesiologist should expect to spent over ten years preparing for their career before they will qualify for certification. After successfully completing a residency program, an anesthesiologist will need to become board certified. To become board certified, a prospective anesthesiologist will need to pass both an oral and a written exam. Once board certification has been received, the anesthesiologist will be certified to work as an anesthesiologist. Since this employment is in demand, finding a rewarding position will not be too difficult. It may be best to first work for an established hospital, but after gaining experience and notoriety in the industry, it may be a good idea to work for a private practice.
