Taking medical surveys online seems like the ideal way to supplement your clinical income. The ability to work from home is very attractive, not to mention the freedom to participate only when you want. Plus, these surveys cover new developments in your area of expertise, so they don’t require a lot of extra brain-power.
In addition to showing you the seven best medical survey panels for clinicians, we will look into the benefits, as well as the downsides, of participating in these panels. I guess there really is nothing in this life that doesn’t have a catch.
Reasons NOT to join:
- Uncertainty: You’ll never really know how much you’ll make from these panels. The volume of requests you’ll receive depends on the needs of the client and your own specialty and years of experience. They certainly won’t be replacing your full-time clinical income anytime soon
- Taxes: You are responsible for your own taxes here, just like with any independent contractor set-up. For some, the supplemental income is not worth the headache at tax time.
Reasons to join:
- Supplemental income: This is self-explanatory. It’s the reason you are here reading this article.
- Shape the direction of industry: This is the lesser-known benefit of these panels. These companies are asking for your help and insight. Sure, they’ll use it to try to make a profit, but that’s why they are paying you for your service. Why not help out by pointing them in the right direction from the start?
