Alison

Non-clinical Physician Consultant

“Transitioning out of clinical medicine is a difficult process. A physician at any level has expertise that can translate well to non-clinical roles, but these can be hard to find. FlipMD bridged this gap, helping me connect with consulting opportunities in areas I enjoy. I am truly grateful for a platform that curates positions for physicians.”

Psychiatry Fellow

“flipMD has been a wonderful platform for me to explore and test my interest and skills in fields related to medicine. It allows for a way to apply my clinical knowledge in novel settings. The opportunities listed here fit what I am looking for perfectly more than some other job finder sites.”

C
Chuck

Gastroenterologist, Medical Director

“My experience with flipMD was great! Almost immediately after signing up, I was connected with a medical device company that was performing field research in my specialty. The device was mailed to my home, and I was able to ‘demo’ it virtually over a zoom call with the facilitator. We had two one-hour long sessions discussing the equipment, and I was paid at the agreed-upon rate through a direct deposit immediately. I have already recommended to a close physician friend that they sign up for the platform.”

I would absolutely recommend flipMD to my colleagues!”

Randy

Pain Medicine Physician

“As a physician looking for a little "side hustle," I stumbled across flipMD and found it to be a simple, well-organized platform to connect me with a good company that has led to a great side stream of revenue. Take a look and see if there is a way you can put your medical knowledge and skill to work outside of practice…”

Kyle

Neurosurgeon

“FlipMD is a great way to collaborate on projects with colleagues and industry from mentoring medical students in the application/interview process to consulting on industry projects or patient apps…all while perhaps earning a bit of extra income!”

Andrew

MSK and Pediatric Radiologist

“flipMD offers unique opportunities for physicians to provide valuable input to companies. After being invited by flipMD, I had the chance to learn more about an innovative device and really felt like I was part of a team assessing its usefulness. It was clear that the company valued my opinion and time. Not only was I fairly compensated for my effort but I also learned about something new that I may put into clinical practice.”

Emergency Medicine Attending Physician

“At first I was skeptical of flipMD. I get so many emails about opportunities that just dead end. But my skepticism turned to an exciting consulting role with a start up company that matched my experience. This never would have happened without flipMD.”

“I joined flipMD to share the knowledge gained over 3 decades of clinical practice in orthopedics. To work with entrepreneurs creating the future of orthopedics has been intellectually stimulating and rewarding.”

John

Founder, Medical Director, CEO, and Staff Physician

“flipMD has exceeded my expectations in every way. Initially, I joined the platform to earn some “gig” income. One of the opportunities evolved into a regular part-time job. Some consultations evolved into investment opportunities. Consulting on various projects gives me insight into new and emerging medical concepts. I feel like I am on the leading edge of the healthcare experience now. Kudos to flipMD.”

What kind of work can I find on flipMD?
flipMD is a centralized, competitive marketplace for physician consultants to vie for jobs coming from any industry needing to work with physicians. For example: medical writing, content creation, test prep (MCAT, USMLE), data analysis and academic writing, chart review, expert witness, ghostwriting, medical illustration, medical advertising, startup/tech, investment banking, FDA, IRB, medical device, grant writing, pharmaceutical, clinical trials, practice building and more.
How does flipMD make money?
flipMD charges our consultants a tiered platform fee based on the amount of money earned per client. The platform fee is 20% for the first $1000 earned with one client. After you make $1000 with the client, the platform fee is reduced to 10%. For example, if you make a total of $6,000 working for one client, you will receive $5,300 directly into your bank account.
Are taxes withheld from the money I earn?
No. You are required to report your earned income to the IRS and we advise withholding a certain amount of income earned via the flipMD marketplace for tax season.
Will I be an employee of flipMD?
No. By signing onto the website, you are taking advantage of the flipMD marketplace; however, you are not considered a flipMD employee and will not be given any of the benefits of employment such as insurance.
Is there a limit to how much I can make on flipMD?
No, not at all. You can make as much or as little as you want. We anticipate some super users can earn $100,000 or more on the website in a year working part-time. It will be very user dependent on how you structure and build your brand within the flipMD marketplace but there are no caps on how much any consultant can make.
What is the future of the flipMD platform?
We are building this marketplace to be the first physician only marketplace for anyone looking for medical experts to come and find physician consultants for any possible job within any industry. Physicians have a lot of earned knowledge through years of school, residency and clinical practice that is extremely marketable; however, we do not have a centralized system to take advantage of our unique skillsets. The ultimate goal is to be the largest source of medical consulting in the world.
