Brayden’s Answer

Hello!

In order to be a anesthesiologists you have to go to medical school be one. One of the biggest challenges with becoming anesthesiologist is of how rigorous the courses are because anesthetics are dangerous and a doctor could quickly kill someone if they were to mess something up. You will first need to get a bachelors degree, most likely in a STEM released field (biology or chemistry) and then apply to medical school. From there medical school is around 4 plus years and then you will have to begin establishing residency by completing internships until you have accrued enough time to become a anesthesiologist. I think if you were to spend some time looking online a reading more into it, you will be able to answer more of your in depth question.

Hopefully this helps! Good luck!

Kenneth’s Answer

Since high school, I always wanted to be a physician. After medical school I wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon. I was on a Navy scholarship in medical school and as a result I did a surgical internship which is now referred to as a PGY-1 year. After that year I wanted to do something far outside my comfort zone, and I became an Undersea Medical Officer which required me to become a deep sea diver and a submariner. Over the next 3 years I become fascinated with pulmonary physiology, gas flows, and Hyperbaric Medicine. As a result, the field of anesthesiology became my choice as a career path. As an anesthesiologist, I was board certified in anesthesia, pain medicine, and palliative care. The field of anesthesia provides many challenges in procedures, patient optimization , pharmacology, and overall patient care.

The diversity in the challenges of patient care really attracted me to the field. If you love what you do, it does not feel like work!

What ever you choose, be open to all possibilities and learning opportunities. Give everything a chance before you decide.
