With your goal in mind, I would major in chemistry as an undergraduate, since anaesthesiologists have to understand the chemistry of the chemicals and the chemstry of the people. That is if you are looking for the MD route.

If you wish to achieve a CNRA (certified registered nurse anesthetist), you will still need school, but you will need a certified program at an higher learning institution. Usually this is only 3 years.

A MD or DO will mean about 14 years, and you must be an exceptional student.

A CNRA should also be exceptional students, but will work only under the direction of a MD/DO.
