    Can Canadians moonlight weekends in USA? Please help!

    Advertisements



    Can a Canadian citizen working as a fellow in Canada, but having completed internal medicine in an American program, be allowed to moonlight temporarily in the US?
    I will be applying for full state licence, but now sure about visa issues/contracts needing to be signed.
    Thanks in advance

    You need to have a working visa. If you don't have it, forget about it.. cause the feds will be calling....

    You CAN moonlight as a J1 if it is within your sponsoring hospital (internal moonlight).

    Is it even possible to internal moonlight anymore? I thought those hours would just go to your work week totals and never be paid out? Also, I believe if you went through ECFMG on a J1, ECFMG restricts any moonlight activity internal or external.

    ECFMG does not restrict any internal moonlight as you are working under the same employer.
    I have a colleague still in residency and he moonlights regularly ( in USA) as of 2017. He is Canadian citizen under J1 visa.

    I never had problems regarding the 80 hour week total. My program did not supervise that well and it was based on the honor system.
    You reported your paid work hours to the hospital for moonlight which was separate.
