Akshat’s Answer

  • 4 years of college

  • 4 years of med school

  • 4-5 years of residency in anesthesiology

  • If you want to specialize even further, you can do a fellowship

Approximately 13 years of training after high school. It's one of the more competitive specialities. You should think about volunteering at a hospital and shadowing an Anesthesiologist. Contact your local hospital.

Hey Deja,

You need to obtain a bachelor's degree, obtain a degree from medical school, and then complete residency.
