    What are some ways in the medical world that anesthesiologists can boost their income? For example, surgeons open surgery centers, orthopods self-refer imaging studies, etc.

    Work more?

    A couple come to mind - reviewing cases (for the defense side ;) ) for malpractice insurors - making presentations for drug and equipment manufacturers.

    One thing you can provide is a source of capital for startup surgery centers. It takes a strong relationship with the surgeons to make that happen.
