How to Become an Anesthesiologist?
The journey to becoming an anesthesiologist is a long one. Here are the steps to take:

1. Get a bachelor's degree. You’ll need a college degree to apply to medical school. Several prerequisites are required, such as biochemistry and physics.
2. Take the Medical College Admission Test. Taking the MCAT – and earning a high score – is required for entrance to medical school. Topics covered on the exam include biology, chemistry and critical analysis.
3. Attend medical school. Medical school is typically completed in four years. The curriculum includes clinical rotations in addition to traditional coursework.
4. Pass a licensure exam. Graduates who want to practice medicine in the U.S. need to pass a licensing exam first. Graduates with an MD take the United States Medical Licensing Examination and those with a DO take the Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination.
5. Undergo residency. After completing medical school, you’ll undergo a one-year internship followed by a three-year residency in anesthesiology.
6. Obtain state licensure. All anesthesiologists have to obtain state licensure, though the requirements vary by state.

After going through medical school, residency and a fellowship, an anesthesiologist will have completed anywhere from 12,000 to 16,000 hours of clinical training, according to the American Society of Anesthesiologists.

Most anesthesiology residents go on to do a one- to two-year fellowship program to learn a subspecialty, such as critical care or obstetric anesthesia. Anesthesiologists may also receive their board certification through the American Board of Anesthesiology. Though not required, it demonstrates advanced skill and knowledge. Becoming certified also helps many with getting more professional opportunities or a higher salary.
