As a resident in Indiana, you will have the opportunity to officially moonlight after completion of your first year of residency and obtaining an unrestricted Indiana medical license.
Fort Wayne has moonlighting opportunities both within the city and in the surrounding towns. From ER work to urgent care to school/sports physicals, you can decide what you want to do.
The following is a summary of some of the opportunities available:
ER – Residents work in ERs around Fort Wayne. Pay ranges from $130-$140 per hour. Some ERs offer solo work, others as second doc. In either case, you will see a good mix of inpatient, outpatient, and critical medicine and have plenty of opportunities for procedures.
Urgent Care – Residents work in urgent care centers. Pay ranges from $80-$100 per hour. This type of acute care setting tends to be rather similar to clinic medicine, and you will gain good experience. Many office-type procedures are available.
Physicals – Numerous opportunities to do school physicals are available in the fall with varying pay rates. Disability physicals can also be done year round.
