Members/Early Career Anesthesiologists

What exactly
are anesthesiologists?

Anesthesiologists are highly trained physicians with at least four years of training in the medical specialty of anesthesiology following four years of college and four years of medical school. And with new anesthetic drugs and techniques constantly being introduced, that training never really stops.
