    Moonlighting is working in the hospital, outside of your normal residency hours, for additional pay. Working in the ED is an example.

    Normally, one is required to have a medical license for the state they are in and may be required to provide their own malpractice insurance.

    Some programs allow this, but many do not.

    Moonlighting (less frequently) means a medical student who moonlights in a lab when their primary focus at that moment is supposed to be academics and not research. Often said of MD/PhD students.
