So, I've been following the whole thing since I was a freshman in college. Now that I am actually in med school and progressing through it, I have a few questions. With CRNA schools popping up everywhere, why haven't they saturated their market yet and when will that time come? I heard the average salary was 165k, I feel if their average salary dropped down to 110-120k not many of them would want to do it and they wouldn't be as much of a nuisance. Also, how are new anesthesiology MD grads doing as far as starting salary and job opportunities? I would love to believe the crnas don't compete for anesthesiology jobs but compete with each other, though it may not be that simple. If new grads are getting offered 250k, that's kinda sad, family medicine docs are being offered that. As far as the whole, employed vs PP thing, I have no idea how that affects new docs.
