Assistants are health professionals who work under the direction of anesthesiologists to develop and implement anesthesia care plans. They are usually responsible for gathering preliminary information, assisting the anesthesiologist during surgery, and monitoring patient’s recovery. In order to be eligible for AA schools, students must have obtained their bachelor’s degree and taken either the MCAT or the GRE. Anesthetist assistant programs usually are two years in length and offer a master’s degree upon graduation.
