As for the paramedic comment, are you a paramedic? and you are making over 60K a year?? Because i have several freinds who are paramedics and are in the nursing program now and i know for a fact they make 10-12 dollars an hour. Even for a private company it is still 12 dollars an hour.
Yes, I am a paramedic. I'm very surprised at the wages there. Not all services pay what I make, however there are also several that pay more.

As an example, here is a link to a collective agreement (public information) for one of the services in our health region. Typically private companies here pay much less than municipalities.

Trying to get back to the intent of your question... If medicine is your field of interest, I wouldn't worry too much about a specialty yet (although it never hurts to set some goals). There are many areas you may become interested in while going through medical school (I'm assuming you have not yet done this). This is a huge field and what seems like countless specialties. Is there something in particular that attracts you to anesthesiology?

Long answer short, to reach paramedic level about three years including clinical rotations. I'm happy to PM you more info if you're interested (just so we don't completely take over this thread).

im going to be a freshman in college this year. im currently majoring in history.

changing major would involve changing schools.



what i think id be interestd in doing is going to a 4yr for a CRNA, then a masters in an AA program, anasthesoligist assistant.

instead of 12 year sin schools, its 6. you get hte smae responsibilites but work under an anasthesoliogst, and you dont get hte label as a doctor
