Which is easier to become, a successful architect or doctor?

i want atleast 6 figures… i dont care how much i have to go schoo…
someone said this..
It’s probably easier to become a doctor, so start with med school. Then AFTER you have your doctor’s degree, then go back to architect school via night classes while practicing medicine to pay the bills. Then when you have both accredations, you can choose which one to practice full time, or for the rest of your life.
what do u think??
And i’m not in for just the money, I am very passionate, I would love to help cure and treat people, both physically and mentally. Hope you did not see my questions as just a scheme to find the fastest way to get rich. I am very ambitious, I believe that I could be a great architect, but even better doctor. You tell me, what I should do. Yes it would be hard to do both, and I may have the dedication, but not the time. I will not be able to be great in both. Doctors are rewarded by prestige, honour, and respect because they save n change lives. Architects are artistic, they create, inspire, and play with nature to inorder to show man or woman’s true capablities. They too are respected highly, but they do not have the responsiblities of lives at hand, surely they can create faulty buildings, but then ofcourse they are tested, before they are built. Doctors and architects both have to work hard at becoming good at thier jobs, it is surely not easy.
I am willing to go the extramiles and hrs of continous study. More than money I want to contribute to my society.

You make them both sound very promising.But both jobs have pros and cons….agreed,a doctor occupation makes u feel good about urself that you have helped someone get better.
Architect is less about other people,its about wat we like to do.More or less,both jobs will need dedication,but the doctor seems to have an edge over itself as you can get resruited by any major hospitals but architects??never hear alot of them happening.So we have to make a name for ourselves.
None of them is easy,they both require dediaction and hard work.Decide properly and NEVER look back……

by the way,i hope i can answer ur questions now.



  • Please become an Architect as with your motivation for wanting to do the job I would not want you to be my doctor.

    If my house falls down because you were dreaming of your next Ferrari when you did the plans its not the end of the world, but if you were operating on me in a life or death situation I would rather you had a vocation for medicine rather than greed.References :

  • I don’t think that response was really fair… thats why we all work isn’t it – to earn a living. And doctors should be well paid because its not an easy job. But I can tell you this…if you are planning on becoming a doctor, don’t bet on having any free time to go back to school…plan on not getting much sleep and not seeing your family and friends much the first few years.References :

  • An architect, these days computers do most of the work, mistakes can be easily corrected and drawings don’t complain.References :

  • Neither is easy as there’s an incredible amount to be learned in both disciplines. It also depends which areas (if any) you want to specialize in and to what level you wish to study.

    Being a doctor means that you’re very restricted and have to follow precise procedures in just about everything you do and some people (me included) couldn’t work like this.

    On the other hand, it’s easier to find work as a doctor and on average the pay is better. But… the top architects earn far in excess of the top doctors.

    I wouldn’t recommend studying for both. Weigh up both options now and decide which path you want to take. Each course is very demanding in it’s own rights and to try to do a second course whilst holding down a tough job with long hours is going to take an awful lot of doing. You could easily be looking at a 10 to 15 year timescale.

    Don’t choosing a career simply to make the most money. What’s the point of having lots of money but a job you hate and a life that sucks.

    Check them both out then go with the one that best suits you.References :

  • It’s easier said than done.

    If you think you’re going to have time AFTER you get your medical degree to attend night classes for architecture design — think again.

    After you become a doctor you still have to go thru extensive hospital residency programs and fellowships in order to become a full-fledged doctor.

    And it doesn’t stop there. You will need to continuosly keep your medical knowledge up-to-date as research on certain diseases progress and will require further study.

    I personally know a very famous doctor and surgeon and I can tell you that you must be able to sacrifice and dedicate 100% of your life to become a successful and respectable doctor.

    Ultimately, it’s not the money you’ll make that will grant you happiness and satisfaction, but rather the actual work you do.

    With that said, unless you really tend to lean toward the medical profession, I’d personally suggest you look into architectural studies first and see how you like it! Good luck!References :

  • I think you can do whateva you put your mind to. I hate when people limit themselves because they feel that its too hard to do something. You are alot like me! I want to be a psychologists, writer and a singer. So i feel that you can achieve big things also. Start off as a doctor then wheneva it feels right start school for an architect. Good luck!!!!!!!References :
