Anesthesiologist Assistants are highly skilled health professionals who work under the direction of a physician anesthesiologist to implement anesthesia care plans. Anesthesiologist assistants work exclusively within the Anesthesia Care Team environment. All AAs possess a premedical undergraduate background and complete a comprehensive didactic and clinical program at the graduate school level. They are trained exclusively in the delivery and maintenance of quality anesthesia care as well as advanced patient monitoring techniques. There are currently 12 accredited educational programs for AAs in the United States.
