    Either you're a troll or you are woefully underinformed about whats involved in becoming a doctor. Medical degrees are exhausting in terms of workload, forget even about having a student job let alone training to be a banker on the side. The situation doesn't get any better once you graduate either, enter professional exams, long and antisocial working hours and the removal of safeguards proposed by this current government. Why do you think junior doctors are striking? You will barely have time to eat or sleep let alone do banking, which on its own comes with a good 50+ hour work week (often a lot more, work for a city firm and you will be fortunate if you get more than 4-5 hours sleep a night) All the self belief and optimism in the world wont change the fact that there isnt enough hours in the day for you to do that
    It's more 70-100 hours, with an avg. of 70-80 as an IB analyst.

    I want to do both because if I become a doctor i'll find it great and rewarding but banking is basically easy money so i'm stuck between those two.

    I'm sure it's possible for me to be a junior doctor and train part time for banking?
    are you kidding me? as a intern i have heard stories of people working 100+ hours per week

    100+ is rare, especially as an intern. 100+ only happens if you have multiple live deals on. Interns don't work nearly as much as that.

    Thank you for the correction, I knew it was an awful lot, way above average working hours, but I didn't know the exact figures

    Work as a doctor in the army and open a bank for the other soldiers, also open a law firm and become a professional football player while directing a film you wrote yourself, which you will act in, which is written in six foreign languages building on your work as an academic linguist in a prominent but obscure Chinese university.
