Anesthesiology is the advanced field of medicine which requires extensive training and knowledge. Anesthetists are the best paid professionals across all medical fields in the United States. In India the awareness about the field is low especially amongst general population. The number of specialist anesthesiologist is about 25000 in India. Almost all the government run medical colleges in India have an anesthesiology department with specialized diploma and degree courses in anesthesiology.
