    J 1 moonlighting

    Advertisements



    Hi ,

    I am a J1 visa holder. Tired of resident/fellow salary for many years. Done with my IM residency program. Hold unrestricted CT license. Some web sites state that J1's are prohibited from moonlighting. But I heard many docs with J1 do moonlighting at their own risk outside their training facility. What are these risks?
    How can I avoid them. Do I have to tell the hospital facility that i am on jail visa when looking for jobs. Can I get away without telling them. Do you know of any moonlighting jobs in IM/Primary care/ER in Connecticut. What is the way to find them?
    Will apprecaite any-ones input who is in the same boat and did moonlighting. Thanks, folks.

    "Further, a foreign medical graduate is not authorized to "moonlight" and is without work authorization to do so. A foreign medical graduate may receive compensation from the medical training facility for work activities that are an integral part of his or her residency program. The foreign medical graduate is not authorized to work at other medical facilities or emergency rooms at night or on weekends. Such outside employment is a violation of the foreign medical graduate’s program status and would subject the foreign medical graduate to termination of his or her program."
