Junior and Undergraduate College

In college, students interested in a career in medicine should complete their liberal arts requirements (general studies in humanities, English, etc.) but plan a pre-med course of study. Nearly all accredited colleges offer standard premedical curricula, which include: calculus, general chemistry, organic chemistry, biology and physics. Some medical schools have other mathematics and/or English requirements. Academic majors are unrelated to admission to medical school.

An easy way to determine if you have an interest in medicine and anesthesiology is to read more about it. Most colleges and universities have subscription to popular anesthesia journals and texts in their collection. One book in particular that comes to mind is Miller's Anesthesia - already in its 5th edition. Also, the Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology, located at the ASA Headquarters in Park Ridge, Illinois, is also open to the public on Monday-Friday (9 a.m. - 4:45 p.m.). You might want to discuss your plans with a counselor or talk to a human resource person at a local hospital to see if any other hospital jobs would be beneficial to your future goals.

Students must successfully complete a four-year undergraduate college program before entering medical school.
