The idea of multiple options for additional moonlighting income during training is obviously appealing.  First of all, more money at a younger age has a multitude of benefits.  Second, you have options, so you can pick the jobs that fit what you’re looking for at any given time. Third, you get experience in multiple settings and this gives you a better perspective of the “real world” of medicine. Unfortunately, there are some downsides of juggling multiple moonlighting gigs during training.  This is not to say that it is not worth it, but it is important to understand them when signing up for different jobs.
