Was anyone aware that there is such thing called Moonlighting for medical residents? Its an opportunity to earn some extra cash on the side (legally) while doing your residency.
Moonlighting is when you work either within the same hospital (in-house moonlighting) that you are working at or at another hospital or clinic but on your own time. Some pay between $60 to $65/hour and you can earn up to $4000/month doing moonlighting alone. Again, this is always done on your own time.
There are restrictions, such as the 80hour/week rule which includes moonlighting time. That is for everyone that chooses to do it in-house style. Another restriction is that for IMGs you have to do at least 2 to 3 months worth of residency to be able to obtain the non restricted medical liscense needed to do moonlighting.
Keep in mind that these restrictions, with the exception of the 80hour/week rule, vary from state to state and does not apply to everyone.
Who ever can further explain what Moonlighting is, please feel free to do so. We look forward to hearing your input. :)
