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
