Job opportunities for physicians and surgeons are expected to grow faster than the average through 2024, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook. This growth can be attributed to the expansion of the health care industry, in addition to the medical needs of the growing elderly population. Most anesthesiologists find work immediately after finishing their residencies. As medical advances allow for different kinds of treatment facilities, anesthesiologists will find more work outside of a traditional hospital setting. The development of more outpatient clinics, freestanding surgical centers, and respiratory therapy clinics has opened up employment opportunities for anesthesiologists.
