An anesthesiologist is a doctor who specializes in administering anesthesia, a medical treatment that prevents patients from feeling pain during surgery.
VIRTUAL JOB SHADOW
Welcome to your first day on the job! Watch this video to see what a day in the life of a Anesthesiologist is like.
STEP 1: Imagine a local hospital has hired you to create a guide to educate patients on the types of anesthesia they may take during their surgery. Decide what format you want your guide to be (trifold, infographic, poster, be as creative as you want!)
STEP 2: Research different types of anesthesia medication and choose at least three types that interest you.
STEP 3: Do a deeper dive on the three types of anesthesia that you chose in STEP 2. Use a spreadsheet or Google Doc to keep track of all the information you learn. For each type of anesthesia, you should know what it does, its unique properties, when to administer it, and to whom it should be administered to.
STEP 4: Create your guide! Make sure to use colors and graphics to make the information stand out! Your guide should be easy to understand as your audience is the general public. When you’ve completed your guide, post it in the Student Showcase to build your resume as an anesthesiologist!
