Moonlighting

Moonlighting is governed by the Moonlighting Policy and Procedures for House Staff Physicians and Dentists. All requirements of that policy must also be followed, including visa and license requirements. We allow moonlighting as long it does not exceed the duty hours. Residents are required to report their hours on MedHub. It should be noted:

  • Moonlighting is never required and must not interfere with the ability of the resident to achieve the goals and objectives of the educational program.
  • The resident must obtain permission of his/her Program Director prior to the beginning of such activities. All approved requests must be filed with the GME Office.
  • Time spent by residents in internal and external moonlighting must be counted toward the 80-hour maximum weekly hour limit. Failure to completely document all time in moonlighting activities will result in suspension of the moonlighting privilege.
  • PGY 1 residents are not permitted to moonlight.
