Top Anesthesiology Schools In Minnesota

First, no matter where you go to medical school there will be basic requirements, such as GPA, or MCAT scores. Are you qualified to get into medical school? Questions like this would be nice to know before preparing to even look at which school you want to join. I found this book on Amazon that goes into all of the basic admission requirements and gives advice to different types of students in different types of situations. Please check out that book or one of the many others like it before you spend a lot of effort looking into a profession that may not be for you.

When choosing a career in the medical field, a career in anesthesiology is a good choice. This field, however, does have some limitations on choices of schools. Minnesota has some good choices when looking into an anesthesiology program, one of which is located at the Minneapolis School of Anesthesiology, while the other is located at the University of Minnesota.

The Minneapolis School of Anesthesiology was founded in the 1920’s and currently consists of seven hospitals working together to educate students. The student will be engrossed in a twenty-seven month nurse anesthesia program, which readies the student to be a nurse anesthesiologist. Graduates of the school earn their Master of Science degree in Nurse Anesthesia. The school runs as a cooperative program between the Minneapolis school of Anesthesia and Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. Boasting a 96.2% graduation rate, the school ranks highly on national scales. Students who graduate also pass their Certification Examination at a rate of 94.2%, on the first attempt! At a rate of $380 per credit hour, the school is also very competitive financially.

The University of Minnesota is a full service University, founded in 1851, and currently consisting of 65,000 students and 25,000 employees. If it is a large university setting you are looking for, while receiving a first class education, then the University of Minnesota is the place for you. The anesthesiology program here is a smaller one, consisting of 21 residents, but the professional options are immense. Tuition in this graduate program is reasonable for both in state, and out of state residents. As an in state resident you will pay around $7000 a semester, whereas out of state residents pay around $10,000 per semester. The University of Minnesota anesthesiology program is at the head of the field in technology, boasting world class labs and facilities.
