Overall, most programs require a Bachelor’s Degree plus fulfillment in all premedical courses (General Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Calculus, and General Physics).

GRE or MCAT (depending on the program)

Application and interview process


All programs matriculate in the summer and are 2 year full time programs.  Within these two years, each student completes their didactic studies while incorporating their clinical rotations.  Students are supervised 1:1 with other AA’s, Anesthesiologists, and Resident Anesthesiologists in their clinical rotations which include general surgery, cardiac, obstetrics, trauma, outpatient surgery, neurosurgery, urology and pediatrics.

The certification board exam is held twice a year, and a passing grade is required to practice.  AAs are required by the medical board to complete CME credits every 2 years and recertify every 6 years.
