HOW DOES ONE BECOME AN ANESTHESIOLOGIST?
.......To become an anesthesiologist, one must first receive a Bachelor's Degree from a four year college or university, and then a Medical Degree (M.D.) from an accredited medical school. After graduation from medical school, a doctor will typically apply for a residency in a specialty such as surgery, pediatrics, or anesthesiology. A residency in anesthesiology requires four additional years of training, with the option for further sub-specialization through a fellowship of one to three years. Board certification may be obtained only by successfully completing a complex written and oral examination process which occurs after graduation from a residency program. All of the members of the Associated Anesthesiologists Medical Group are physicians who are board certified in anesthesiology.
