About Physician Side Gigs
Nisha Mehta, MD
Founder, Physician Side Gigs
The group was started in 2016 by Dr. Nisha Mehta, a radiologist who writes and speaks about life in medicine. It has grown to approximately 47,000 verified physicians, many of whom are actively pursuing passive revenue streams or who are pursuing passion projects.
The exploration of side gigs amongst physicians has increased over the past few years, as rates of physician burnout rise and as physician demographics evolve.
Physician side gigs serve many purposes in addition to creating additional revenue streams. They allow people to explore other interests which they can pursue on their own terms, result in networking opportunities that can lead to friendships and additional opportunities, and can provide added flexibility and work life balance. For these reasons and so many more, many of our members are interested in learning more about the opportunities available to them. This website and the Facebook group were created to foster this.
