The aim of the presented study was to check a hypothesis that having more than one job can have both positive and negative consequences for doctors’ health. Participants in the study were 411 medical professionals representing various specialties. They were examined using the Subjective Job Evaluation Questionnaire by Dudek et al., the Mood and Health State Questionnaire by Rząsa, and the General Health Questionnaire (GH Q-12) by D. Goldberg & R. Williams. The higher was the respondents’ occupational stress, the poorer was their subjective physical health. Such components of occupational stress as responsibility, psychological strain due to job complexity, lack of rewards at work, and a sense of threat were found to be most important in this respect. These four components of occupational stress were interrelated and constituted a feedback loop. As hypothesized, medical doctors working more than one full-time job reported a greater sense of occupational stress. However, as compared to those with one job, they did not report more somatic complaints and had less psychological problems.
