Doctors are in a unique position to earn some supplemental income by filling out surveys. Consider this one form of non-clinical moonlighting. You sit in front of your computer and spend 15-45 minutes filling out surveys. Then, you close your computer and wait for the check in the mail. Some of these surveys pay several hundred dollars per survey. Most of these are market research surveys, but you may also see some that are focused on educational research. Some surveys give you Amazon gift credit instead of cash. Would you prefer cash or Amazon gift credit? Want to start earning some extra cash through paid surveys? An easy place to get started is Sermo (but this site is only for U.S. physicians).
