Joan, a doctor in Anesthesiology with a sub-specialty in critical care, looks after very ill patients in the intensive care unit. Medicine is a terrific and rewarding career. It's a long road to become a doctor, but after medical school, you do get paid while you're in training. Also, you can choose any college major as long as you fulfill the medical school prerequisites; and in fact, medical schools look for well-rounded students.
Anesthesiologists are physicians who administer anesthetics prior to, during, or after surgery, or other medical procedures.
The role of the anesthesiologist extends beyond the operating room. The anesthesiologist is responsible for the assessment of the patient prior to surgery and also for the well-being of the patient while emerging from the effects of anesthesia.
Some anesthesiologists also do pain management for people with chronic back or neck problems.
