Why moonlight as a doctor or resident? There are several benefits with moonlighting opportunities, including extra income, networking opportunities, new experiences, and increased autonomy.

Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of moonlighting.

Extra Income

Naturally, one of the most popular benefits of moonlighting is the extra income it provides.

Moonlighting and locum 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.

Networking and Future Employment Prospects

Whether you are a resident preparing to apply for a permanent position or looking for new part- time opportunities, 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.

New Experiences

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.

Increased Autonomy

Doctors and residents often have limited control when navigating the fast-paced medical industry. Moonlighting and locum tenens puts a little more control 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.
