Ethics Poll

Resident Physicians and Moonlighting

The Ethics Poll is a snapshot of the opinions of interested readers.

Do you (or did you) moonlight while in residency training?
If so, how many moonlighting hours per month did you average?
What is (was) the most important motivation for moonlighting?
Do you agree that hours spent moonlighting should be included in the 80 hours per week that residents are allowed to work?
Poll results reflect the opinions of visitors to the site who voluntarily answer the poll questions. Those visitors do not represent a random sample of Virtual Mentor readers.
