I was also under the impression that it was far less than OB, neurosurg., plastics and other surg. subspecialties.

15-75,000 per year-ish? Any thoughts?

"the average anesthesiologist’s liability premium remained unchanged from 1985 to 2002 at about $18,000" <http://www.citizen.org/documents/Anesthesiologists.pdf.>

biased source? yes, but its the only stat i've found.
