Do anesthesiologists have to be really good at math?

I'm a sophomore in high school and I'm interested in becoming an anesthesiologist. But, i'm not the best at math. And i was wondering exactly how good at math do you have to be to be an anesthesiologist? And how many math classes do you have to take? ANY answers would be very much appreciated! Thank you!

If decimal points is hard then don't choose the job...if not your fine. For example your using Fentanyl you don't want to give 10.0MG of fentanyl you probably want to give 0.0100 of fentanyl (just an example not perfect).

For all medical careers, you must have a standard math level. It changes from job to job.
