5 Reasons Doctors have Side Hustles

 Why, when their main jobs pay so well and take up so much of their time, are medical doctors turning to side hustles as a supplement to their day (and night) jobs as physicians?

Your doctor may be working a side job simply to avoid treating their school debt like a mortgage and help themselves pay off their student loans.

#3 A Goal-Driven Nature

Starting something completely novel — often from scratch — can give your physician a whole new set of goals to set and pinnacles to reach.
