Nisha Mehta, MD on why physicians should consider side gigs
“At first, it may seem strange that ‘physician’ and ‘side gig’ are even used in the same sentence. After all, the average physician in the United States is already working more than a 40 hour work week and struggling with issues related to work-life balance. As someone who talks about physician burnout and as the founder of the Physician Side Gigs Facebook group, I’ve been asked many times how adding yet another thing to the physician’s plate could possibly be a good idea.
And yet, I’m a strong believer that physicians should have additional revenue streams and pursue other interests. Why?”
