An Anesthesiologist ranked the #1 highest paying job in Massachusetts according to indeed.com with an average salary of $395,147 a year. They're responsible for delivering anesthesia to patient undergoing a procedure. They monitor patients while they are under anesthesia and supervise them post-procedure. Anesthesiologists are also required to evaluate patients before they provide them with anesthesia to understand how much the patient should receive based on medical history and the procedure they are getting. During this procedure, you might find the actual doctor having a bite to eat in the hospital cafeteria (speaking from actual experience) before the surgery.

Now according to asahq.org, Like other medical doctors, you must follow undergraduate education with four years of medical school. After medical school, a physician specializing in anesthesiology completes a four-year anesthesiology residency program. Therefore, you must complete a four-year degree in order to full-fill the requirements for the job.
