Doctor or psychologist

Recommended Posts

 

Asalamu alaykum 

I don't know if I should be a doctor or a psychologist. I want to be a doctor for the sawaab but at the same time the studies are hard. And psychology I like it because I think it is interesting and I like the studies. I like the both and the studies are 5 years but I can't choose which one I should study to. I need some help please. Jazak Allah khair

Be a psychiatrist. That is both and more interesting.

Note: the radio said today, Friday, that the Rorschach Test is 100 years old.

You know these: ink images of pigs feet, snakes with moustaches, mutagenic butterflies, and other artistic efforts.

Salam. Have you discussed this with your family? If they are pushing you to be a doctor and you want to be a psychologist, you need to discuss it some more. 

Wa alaykum Salam. No my family don't push me or anything they say you can be anything you want.

Well, for starters there are many kinds of Doctors there, Cardiologists, Oncologists, Immunologists etc. If you find any of these interesting, then definitely go for being a doctor as it offers a large income and allowances. You could also become a neurologist and study the human brain and the nervous system, its  mechanisms etc. which is quite close to psychology as it teaches you a lot about human behavior.

Although, you should pursue what you are comfortable with. As this  your whole life depends on this decision.

May Allah grant you success.

If you choose to be a psychologist you won't be sorry because you already like psychology. If you choose to be a doctor you could specialize in psychiatry. However, be aware that in medical school you might find that you love radiology, anesthesiology or something else, so you will need to make another decision about what kind of doctor you want to be. Good luck!

Keep options open for you - if you can get into med school then work hard and be a doctor - those skills will never be taken from you, you also have lots of new areas open to you that you may not necessarily have thought of right now. You can always pick up psychology later in life. But if you know you really want to do psychology then do it and be the best. Good luck.
