Anesthesiologists work in hospitals, clinics, and pain
treatment centers. They are doctors who administer
drugs and gasses to patients so they don’t feel pain
Anesthesiologists work indoors, almost 100% of the
time. They work in very sterile environments, like the
operating room. They have sometimes very long
working hours, and they are always busy. This job is
not for someone who is lazy.

Education and Residency
Anesthesiologists, after one year of specialization in
anesthesiology, have a very good chance of moving to
a higher position and getting paid at least $20,000
Anesthesiologists earn about $140,000 the first year. If they have
over two years of specialty, they can earn up to, on average, $321,886.
If an anesthesiologist worked for ten years, their pay can become up to
$500,000 (that being the highest position possible).The only thing that
pays more than anesthesiology, would be to become a specialty surgeon.
Employment for anesthesiologists is growing faster than
average, due to the expansion of health care industries
and our aging population.

communicate effectively with their patients
and other healthcare support staff.
