Anesthesiologist Assistant

In a profession that requires the utmost in responsibility, we offer a program that can teach you how to become an anesthesiologist assistant, and help you develop the skills to provide safe and efficacious anesthesia care for patients. Upon completion of classroom, laboratory, and clinical requirements, you’ll be awarded a Master of Medical Science in Anesthesia Science (MMSc).

According to the American Academy of Anesthesiologist Assistants, the job outlook is very favorable.

Anesthesiologist assistants are qualified by virtue of their education and training at the master’s degree level to deliver anesthesia as a member of an anesthesia care team lead by a physician anesthesiologist.

The South University Anesthesiologist Assistant program is specifically designed to provide classroom, laboratory, and clinical experiences that prepare graduates to deliver anesthesia care to patients of all ages and severity of illness for the full spectrum of surgical procedures.

Depending upon state laws, an anesthesiologist may supervise up to four anesthetizing locations staffed by any combination of anesthesiologist assistants and nurse anesthetists.

Under the direction of an anesthesiologist, the duties of an anesthesiologist assistant include but are not limited to: gathering preoperative patient data, establishing an airway and managing appropriate ventilation of the lungs, administering the entire spectrum of drugs used in the current practice of anesthesiology, placing various systems for vascular access, continuously assessing the functionality of the anesthesia machine and all patient-related equipment, and establishing and interpreting a full range of patient monitoring that is appropriate for the care of the patient during anesthetic management.
