     Anesthesiology is interesting and challenging. It is used in many surgical proceudres. However, to become an anesthesiologist you will spend much time and efforts. An undergraduate education is needed and you must become a doctor of medicine first. Your anesthesiologist career starts only after graduation from medical school with M.D. degree. To become an anesthesiologist you will spend four more years. As you can see, anesthesiologist education takes 12 years in general. However, the time spent for studying pays back in future: anesthesiologists receive one of the highest salaries in medical field. Resident training for anesthesiologists includes one year of medical or surgical internship and three years of anesthesiologist education itself. To become a licensed anesthesiologist you will have to undergo a couple certification stages. The initial step is the UMLE. You will have to pass this exam after the graduation from medical school. It is definitely not easy job to perform, you will be responsible for people's lives, so you must be well-educated and perfectly trained.

I chose this article because it best describes the schooling and what you need to go through to become an anesthesiologist. It talks about the ceritificates required and medical school.

This was a great article for me, especially given that I am about to enter college. this article outlines the required steps a student of anesthesiology needs to take in order to find a job within the field. One of the most relevant items mentioned was getting an undergraduate degree. Seeing as I am not sure about what career path I am going to go down (aerospace or anesthesiology), it was good to read what the article had to say about an undergraduate degree for someone considering medical school. I plan to major in mechanical engineering so my options remain open on where I can take my life. The article says that one can major in anything they like, but make sure that one takes biology, anatomy, physics and math. Mechanical engineering will cover physics and math, and the university requires biology. Anatomy could easily be worked into my schedule as an elective class. This article also talks about medical school placement tests and the duration of medical studies and practice before a student can practice anesthesiology on his or her own. This process takes around 12 years. That's a long time! One thing I know about myself though is, I love to learn, and I want to make sure I am going to do the best possible job I can do within my field. If that means extensive study, so be it. I look forward to a lengthy education because I know that the benefits will far outweigh the costs.
