Anesthesiology/AP Classes?



I am a Sophomore in High School and I am highly interested in the career of Anesthesia. I was wondering if you think that taking AP classes would benefit me at all. If so, could you tell me which classes would be best and what you think would generally help me later on (as in when I get to college and medical school)? Thank you!

You are still very early in your process, so there are no specific AP courses that are better than others but AP courses, in general, are useful because they prepare you for college level work. As college is so competitive, that preparation will help you achieve better grades which will make you more competitive for medical school, etc. Any science courses will be helpful to you, but also take courses you enjoy.
