Also, sadly, they have the highest rates of physician suicide, What's the reason? Typically programs with large resident class sizes are more dependent on them. So my first point was correct. is there uncertainty in the role of automation for radiology and pathology? Diagnostic radiology too, though that's still a pretty competitive specialty. But the specialty requires certain personality traits, DOs attest. [–]DerpyMDM-4 0 points1 point2 points 3 years ago* (4 children). Now Ophthalmology may be less desired because of lowered reimbursements, but I would still argue your statement 2 doesn't hold much ground. is anesthesiology less competitive than 10 years ago? Will technology or CRNA encroachment pose any threat to practice? There’s a lot of self selection, I think it only seems competitive because of that. Therefore anesthesiology isn't competitive because of mid-level encroachment. I'm a CA-3/PGY-4 at a major academic program. My personal insight is now a little dated due to having matched four years ago, but at that time, my evaluation of the data presented in NRMP's Charting Outcomes generally demonstrated that supply and demand have remained well matched with the number of residency spots increasing with demand. My final piece of advice- make sure to remain humble throughout this process. having a home prgm that has a fellowship is your highest chance. its a hugely complex issue and part of the argument i was trying to make with the other poster in here saying that it was all because of mid levels. Residency match competitiveness scale ._12xlue8dQ1odPw1J81FIGQ{display:inline-block;vertical-align:middle} Your job is always at stake in anesthesia. this really made me smile. That's crazy. That's why psych and family med are in such insane demand but still pay like crap. I fully expect to have a good run, though, putting my skills to work. You'd need perspectives from people actually in it, otherwise it sounds a lot better than it is I think, not to dismiss it altogether. As a medical student, I had a hard time at first understanding what the physician anesthesiologist does. CRNAs have been around for decades. [–]ground_glass_enema 2 points3 points4 points 3 years ago (0 children). If you want a career as a plastic surgeon, here is how competitive the medical specialty is to match into a plastic surgery residency. further, becoming less competitive does not necessarily mean there is a "scarcity" of anesthetists. Back in the day when you needed 4 MDs for your cases...today...you only need 1 supervising MD and 3 CRNAs...AND..the days of needing a supervising MD are probably numbered. People choose specialties for any number of reasons. Troll posts will not be tolerated. Gas IMO is a great gig, but it also is one that is very underrated by the public, admins and even other physicians. It doesn't look like CRNA's will be getting independent rights anytime soon, and if they do it won't take long for people to see the light. Is there something Im missing here? Hospitals that needed 4 MDs before are now staffing with 1 supervising MD and the 3-4 CRNAs on a team. Also from what I hear they do get shit on a lot from the surgeons. If I had to guess theres a couple of factors-. Have plenty of family members working in the OR. my best suggestion would be to talk to staff and faculty at your institution about their thoughts. Some programs start in the PGY1 year while some start in the PGY2 year. Are you blind to the trends of your own specialty? if youre interested in a specialty as a life long career do a little bit of research yourself. Some of my colleagues in anesthesiology specialize in chronic pain or critical care medicine. we also don't have accurate data on whether or not decreases in salary were because of increasing numbers of patients being seen due to the ACA and lower reimbursement rates through that and thus contributing to more patients/cases/hours to maintain salary levels or if mid level encroachment is reducing the bargaining power for anesthetists with regards to their salary. Or perhaps informing patients to ask for their anesthesiologist to be a physician? To They have an image in their head of what they'll do and anesthesiology is too far-removed from what that is. Is residency as demanding as other procedural specialties? As programs convert from AOA to ACGME, they leave the osteopathic match and join the NRMP Match. Most programs are very big in terms of class size since each resident can staff a room, so there are overall a lot of spots in the specialty. He meant NSGY he was listing off surgical subs. most prgms have 2 -3 spots and likely will take 1-2 of their own for [–][deleted] 11 points12 points13 points 3 years ago (0 children). I'll be happy to help out in that regard, but I don't want it to be any more than 20% of my work time. I want to do my own cases, so I will be doing a fellowship. Interested in Anesthesiology (self.medicalschool). I think a main reason is that it's simply not for everybody. If you go into anesthesiology and DO NOT want to do a fellowship, I think you need to accept the fact that you may end up in a job where you put out fires all day and make sure CRNA's get their lunches on time.
