This research report discusses factors related to the continued growth and development of an already established professional group, namely, anesthesiologists. The factors that discriminate between two identifiable factions (segments) of practicing anesthesiologists are described within the conceptual framework of a social movement as a way of explaining the processes of further development of a profession. Some implications for future developments in anesthesia practice are presented.
