Question
I holder a Bsc.physician assistant and want to pursue a career in anaesthesia.

Answer
As far as I know, the path for you is the same as anyone else. You need four years of college, four years of medical school and then four years of an anesthesia residency. I don't think there is any shorter path. The only other option might be to become a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA).
