Federal regulations stipulate that residents on J-1 visas may not work or receive compensation for activities outside the approved training program, AS A RESULT, J-1 VISA HOLDERS MAY NOT MOONLIGHT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. 

Federal regulations stipulate that residents on H1-B visa must apply and be approved for additional H1-B sponsorship in order to be employed outside their approved program.  Program Directors must contact the GME Office (722 4905) to confirm that a resident on a H1-B visa is legally permitted to moonlight.
