Our philosophy is simple and straightforward. We’ll listen to you and provide the ing you need to your complete satisfaction. We will delivery all of this service at a reasonable, fair price.
Founding physicians, Sean Curran, MD, and Scott Shapiro, MD, have extensive first-hand moonlighting and practice management experience. This affords them a unique perspective and has earned OnCall the reputation of providing hospitals and other health care facilities with what they need—professional and skilled physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who take care of your patients to your high standards.
Residents across the nation are using moonlighting to earn extra income, gain more experience, and broaden their networks. If you are considering moonlighting as a resident, you might have a few questions. The experts at OnCall Solutions are here with the answers.
In the broadest sense, moonlighting is the practice of picking up extra shifts alongside your residency. The term originated in the 1950s in reference to the fact that most extra shifts occurred after-hours. Moonlighting is traditionally associated with physicians (MDs/DOs), though moonlighting opportunities are now commonly available for physician assistants and nurse practitioners.
Working a few moonlighting shifts per month can easily add 50% or more to a typical resident’s annual salary.
Moonlighting lets you step into the role of an attending physician in making decisions for patients—but with an appropriate level of support, as needed from hospital-employed physicians by phone or in-house. It is the perfect way to practice with this level of autonomy while gaining comfort in different areas of the medical field.
Moonlighting at other hospitals or institutions can provide networking opportunities that can open the door to new job opportunities once you have finished your training.
Moonlighting opportunities outside your home institution are typically arranged through a 3rd party ing solution—like OnCall Solutions. These agencies work to expedite the credentialing and onboarding processes while connecting trainees with appropriate opportunities.
Most moonlighting opportunities gravitate towards general medicine with a lean towards in-patient medicine; however, there are sometimes more specialized moonlighting opportunities, including ICU care, surgery, or even outpatient coverage. OnCall Solutions can help partner you with moonlighting opportunities in your area of expertise.
To obtain moonlighting credentials, residents must have a DEA license associated with an address within their state. Applicants must also have an unrestricted license to practice medicine in their state.
Residents must complete a minimum of two years of training to apply for their unrestricted medical license:
Once you have passed these thresholds, you can begin the credentialing process for medical moonlighting.
Outside moonlighting activities are recognized as clinical activities by the ACGME toward the 80-hour work week mandate. As you might know, the ACGME mandates that trainees can work no more than 80 duty hours per week, averaging over four weeks.
Resident moonlighters often need several letters of recommendation, one of which comes from their program director. To earn and maintain a program's support, you must stay within your ACGME hour limitations. OnCall can help you manage your schedule to reap the benefits of moonlighting without exceeding hours.
Some residencies offer moonlighting opportunities in-house, meaning shifts within a trainee’s hospital that need coverage. In-house moonlighting income is often included in a resident's typical paycheck with taxes withheld.
What about moonlighting at other institutions? In these cases, your payments are managed by your ing agency. At OnCall Solutions, our physicians are all paid as 1099 self-employed physicians, meaning that no taxes are withheld on the clinician's behalf. We recommend you consult with your accountant or tax advisor on allocating tax payments on this earned income.
All OnCall contractors get paid on or around the 15th of each month. We accommodate our physicians’ preferred payment method—whether that be by direct deposit or check.
Yes! All OnCall contractors are covered by a comprehensive medical liability policy—which includes tail coverage at no additional costs. We understand the importance of providing medical malpractice coverage for our moonlighters.

Why moonlight as a doctor or resident? There are several benefits you can expect to reap from moonlighting opportunities, including extra income, networking opportunities, new experiences, and increased autonomy. Let’s take a closer look at these 4 pros of moonlighting.
Naturally, one of the most popular benefits of moonlighting is the extra income it provides. Moonlighting shifts tend to pay higher than traditional shifts—helping you make the most of your time on the clock. Working just a few moonlighting shifts each month can substantially boost your overall earnings.
Whether you are a resident preparing to apply for a permanent position or a doctor considering a job change—moonlighting can help. Picking up moonlighting shifts at other institutions provides valuable networking opportunities. You can experience the different clinics, hospitals, communities, and job benefits available in your area firsthand. Once you find the right fit, you will have connections who can help you easily land your desired position.
Have you reached a lull at your hospital or clinic? Perhaps you are interested in seeing what is out there? Maybe you are a resident hoping to gain experience that your home institution cannot provide? Moonlighting is the perfect way to gain exposure to new experiences. These opportunities allow you to learn new things, meet new people, test new work environments, and keep your job engaging without a full-time commitment.
Doctors and residents often have limited control when navigating the fast-paced medical industry. Moonlighting puts a little more agency in your hands—letting you manage your pay, your extra shift schedule, your work location, and often the areas of the medical field you choose to practice within.
Residents and trainees can also experience more autonomy in making patient decisions—while still having help at their fingertips. It creates the ideal circumstances for exploring and expanding your comfort zone in a safe, autonomous environment.
Before jumping on board with moonlighting, these opportunities do require some consideration. Thankfully, moonlighting does not come with an extended commitment. If you find yourself facing the downsides of this practice, you can simply choose to cut down or stop picking up moonlighting shifts altogether. Here is a look at three potential drawbacks of medical moonlighting.
As a doctor or resident—free time can be sparse. Signing up for moonlighting shifts can mean longer hours, added stress, fewer days off, and more time away from home. While many moonlighters find this practice well worth the resulting benefits, it is certainly not for everyone.
With a platform like OnCall, you can unlock complete control over your moonlighting shifts—planning them only when you have the extra time for additional work.
When moonlighting as a resident, your program will have requirements you must meet and educational programs you must attend. Additionally, the ACGME limits residents to 80-hour work week averages—which includes moonlighting hours.
If you are not careful, moonlighting work can get in the way of your residency—and might leave a bad taste in your program director’s mouth. Working with a program like OnCall can help balance your schedule and ensure you do not exceed your mandated program restrictions.
The more hours you work, the higher your chances are of encountering some medical workplace liability. While your home institution will provide malpractice insurance coverage, moonlighting at other institutions may leave you vulnerable to liability in the case of a malpractice claim. If you have to pay out of pocket for insurance, it can cut into your bottom line.
It is vital to choose a moonlighting partner that covers malpractice insurance. OnCall, for example, includes moonlighting malpractice insurance—including tail coverage— to our at no additional cost.
Moonlighting can add some modest complexity to paying taxes for physicians.. Unlike regular income, moonlighting pay often holds a 1099 tax status—and is delivered without taxes withheld. Instead, you will have to pay these taxes quarterly or in a lump sum during tax season.
Naturally, most medical professionals leave this work to their tax professionals. However, you may want to set aside money from your moonlighting paychecks to cover your tax season balance.

As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, more and more medical professionals are choosing to take control over their practices by switching to locum tenens and moonlighting roles. However, you might have a few questions about working in moonlighting or locum tenens positions. One of the biggest questions many medical professionals have is, “How much money can I make as a locum or moonlighter?” The experts at OnCall Solutions are here with a look at the average moonlighting and locum tenens salary numbers in 2023, and how you can improve your current salary.
Locum tenens is a Latin phrase meaning "one who holds the place.” In this role, qualified medical professionals temporarily hold the place of full-time employees when hospitals and practices experiencing gaps. Moonlighting is frequently used to describe a similar need, but typically has more longevity and the provider partnership can last years!
By filling this vital role in the healthcare industry, locums and moonlighters make more money each year than their full-time counterparts. Physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners can even frequently work locum tenens and moonlighting roles full-time.
Locum tenens salaries and moonlighting positions are rarely salary-based, as the role is frequently based hours or days worked (while salaries reflect an annual pay). Locums and moonlighting are often paid hourly or by contract over a certain period. However, we can use these numbers to calculate a rough estimate of the locum tenens or moonlighting position’s salary equivalent. Using current statistics by ZipRecruiter®, let’s take a look at average locum tenens salaries in 2023:
As a locum or moonlighter, you will naturally want to make as high of a salary as possible. If you are interested in learning more about how much you can make working locum tenens positions, here are some factors to consider:
When working as a locum or moonlighter, you control your practice by deciding which shifts to accept. Naturally, the more you choose to work each year, the more money you will make.
The area you live/work within can affect your hourly pay. Locum and moonlighting pay (like most salaries) often reflects the cost of living in the area.
The supply/demand and market value of your position can influence your pay. For example, a moonlighting nurse practitioner will make an impressive salary, though it will likely be less than that of a moonlighting brain surgeon.
How do you find your locum tenens or moonlighting positions? Most locums use a staffing agency. If your staffing agency does not provide you with malpractice insurance and tail coverage, you could pay for your protection out of pocket. These extra costs will adjust the take-home pay you earn.
OnCall Solutions can help you make the most of your locum tenens and moonlighting work. We partner physicians, physician assistants, and nurses with locum tenens positions in their areas. We streamline the credentialing process and take care of the groundwork—supporting you towards your locum tenens success. We invite you to contact OnCall Solutions to learn more or get started today!
