    With the future health reform, I've seen on some threads people saying that no one should go into Anesthesiology because of (a) nurse anesthesists almost taking over jobs and (b) the salary being much lower. So does medicare really affect specialties for hospitals? How much lower do you predict the salaries will be (like 1/3, 50% etc.)?

    People are still going to need surgery. Hence, people will still need general anesthesia.

    There was ZILCH in the health care reform about tort reform and Anesthesiologist will be fine (and better off than most physicians).

    here is the deal.. I hate to think that the future is bleak.. but.. MD only jobs will change into supervisory jobs so there will be less jobs with the same number or even more docs available so it may become a problem 10-20 years down the road because lets face it there isnt a problem with letting mid levels sit and monitor the patient while you are making decision with other patients . So I think we are training too many Anesthesiologists
