moonlighting

MEDSPEAK-US

A popular term for working at a second job—potentially compromising the health of patients being managed when the doctor is less fresh—after one’s regular working hours–i.e., “by moonlight.”

A resident’s (registrar, UK) salary at a typical US teaching hospital is sufficient to cover living expenses but not to repay crushing (circa $200,000) medical school loans. 

Synonym Double jobbing–UK
