Open Anesthesiology Positions

Anesthesiology is a medical field devoted to pain relief. A patient will need a pain reliever when undergoing a surgical or invasive procedure. It could be a local anesthetic or general anesthetic treatment, depending on the nature of the procedure. Without an anesthetic treatment, the patient could suffer unbearable pain and suffering. Not only would that make the patient uncomfortable, but it could also worsen their health condition.

Anesthetics allow patients to remain calm and comfortable during invasive procedures. It also means that doctors and surgeons can do their jobs well without the patient moving around or fidgeting. That is why the field of anesthesiology is crucial for supporting patients in emergency rooms and intensive care units.

The medical professional in this field is an anesthesiologist. They often work in hospitals, operating rooms, hospice environments, palliative care units, and private surgical practices. Although an anesthesiologist will usually administer an anesthetic to a patient before a surgical procedure, they may also administer it during and afterward.

The anesthesiologist may administer a local anesthetic to numb the bodily area receiving the invasive treatment. After receiving a local anesthetic, the patient is still conscious, but they won’t feel anything in the treated area. A local anesthetic is better for minor operations that don’t involve internal organs, such as skin and dental treatments.

But for more prolonged and intense surgeries, the patient would benefit better from a general anesthetic to knock them out. The general anesthetic slips the patient into a state of unconsciousness and lets them sleep throughout the procedure. Sometimes the doctor or surgeon will allow the patient to choose between a local and general anesthetic in case they are too scared to stay awake during surgery.

Anesthesiologists must complete a four-year undergraduate degree, a four-year medical degree, and a four-year anesthesiology residency program. In addition, they’ll need to complete at least two years of a fellowship program to acquire a subspecialty. For example, it could be a subspecialty in pain management, pediatric anesthesia, intensive care anesthesia, obstetric anesthesia, neuro-anesthesia, cardiac anesthesia, acute pain management, or hospice care anesthesia.

Becoming an anesthesiologist is a rewarding field because you get to be the one to eliminate pain and suffering in patients.
