Hi Omar,
To become an anesthesiologist, you will need a medical degree (either through an MD or DO program) to attend residency where you will then train in a hospital as Dr. Schwalb mentioned. However, there has recently been a surge in the contributions by CRNAs, which are licensed nurse anesthetists who work closely with anesthesiologists to provide great care. Sometimes the CRNA or anesthesia resident is the only one in the OR with the patient, while the anesthesiologist in charge circulates from room to room monitoring multiple patients at once (more often at outpatient surgery centers with more minor surgeries.) Multiple ways to pursue your career of interest.

An anesthesiologist is a physician and a medical degree from a medical school is required. The Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree is required. Medical school is typically four years after obtaining a bachelors degree from a college or university. Following medical school and the obtaining of your MD degree, all physicians are required to attend a (paid) one-year internship in a hospital in any field of medicine of your choice. This is required to sit for a federal licensing exam that will allow you to practice medicine. To become an anesthesiologist, a specialist in anesthesiology, you then attend a three year anesthesia residency training program. This is basically on-the-job paid training in a hospital.

Anesthesia is a great field. It requires a bachelor's degree (4 years), followed by a medical doctorate (4 years), followed by an anesthesia residency (4 years).
