Abstract

Our review of the anesthesiologist as perioperative physician has shown the basis for stating that the specialty is at a crossroad. Do we stay in the illusionary safe harbor of the operating room? Do we fight with other medical and nonmedical providers to expand or entrench our roles as hospital-based physicians? Or, do we take a different approach - the one outlined here: a redefinition of the scope of our practice with broadened training to provide increased expertise in the evolving medical marketplace? This would include solid training in business, informatics, data management, and critical thinking on outcomes.
