what does it take to be an anesthesiologist?
I am a sophomore who is interested in learning more about anesthesiologist. What steps do they have to take in order to become a anesthesiologist? Is it fun or hard? #doctor #healthcare #experience #anesthesiologist
4 years of college
4 years of med school
4-5 years of residency in anesthesiology
