Paid Physician Survey Panels Seeking Oncologists
If you are a certain type of physician, you are currently a very in-demand specialist. So in-demand, in fact, that there are companies looking far and wide for you so they can give you free money. I mean, they also want you to answer their market research questions, but at least one that I know of will give you up to $75 just for signing up to their panel.
One reason I hear physicians don’t participate in some of these panels is the pay. If you’re an oncologist making $150 to $200 a hour in the United States, a 30-minute survey for $40 is understandably not very appealing nor profitable. We won’t waste your time on those. The goal of this article is to identify the panels you’ll want to be a part of.
The great thing about these survey panels is that you are in charge. You can join as many or as few as you want and participate as much or as little as you want. Today, we’re going to look at the three highest-paying medical survey panels for oncologists.
Other specialists who have a good chance of qualifying for paid medical market research studies here are hematologists, pulmonologists, rheumatologists, neurologists, and psychiatrists.

All Global Circle
Let’s get straight to the good stuff. All Global Circle (AGC) is currently recruiting oncologists and other specialists hard. We’ve worked with them to create a special offer just for Modern MedEd readers. Through December 31st, 2020, oncologists and a select few other specialists can earn up to $75 just for joining this panel and verifying your specialty.
This section applies to physicians (MD/DO) in the following specialties. Medical professionals coming from other specialities or disciplines won’t be eligible for the additional offers at this point, but can still earn a $50 sign-up bonus here.
For the entrepreneurial physicians out there, you can also take advantage of their temporary referral program for a total of $800 in your first week, and $700 weekly thereafter until the end of 2020.
We’ll summarize it below, but you can click the links to go straight to the registration page to learn more if you’re already sold.
We’ve already covered the initial $75 for joining (and verifying your specialty as above). When you complete your first survey from AGC, you’ll get another $25 on top of the survey honorarium. So now we’re at $100 for just a few minutes of your time, plus the survey payout.
What if there is no survey for you during this promotion? It’s unlikely, but you’ll still get the extra $25. Oh and AGC will donate $25 to Red Cross, UNICEF or Doctors Without Borders. Choose your charity when you join here.
Earn A Referral Bonus from AGC
Now for the real money. Once you become a member, you can refer up to 20 physician colleagues (of the above specialties) each week and earn $35 for each successful sign up. There’s your extra $700 per week now through the end of 2020.
To stimulate competition, one member from each eligible country (US, UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain) with the most referrals by December 31st will win an extra $250. A matching $250 donation also will be made to Red Cross, UNICEF or Doctors Without Borders.
Speaking of donations, any time you complete a survey longer than 15 minutes, AGC will send another $5 to one of the above mentioned organizations. Additionally, they’ll donate $10 more to your charity for each successful referral of yours.
All Global Circle Payout Options
Aside from what we’ve discussed above, AGC also has one of the more robust payout options I’ve seen. Choose an e-gift card from Amazon, iTunes, Starbucks, or a number of other stores.
Physical gift card options include Macy’s, Kohl’s, and a variety of restaurants. Alternatively, you can choose to have your honorarium donated to the Special Olympics.
If I have the option, I prefer to be in control of my own charitable donations, partly for the efficiency of giving and potential tax benefits in the United States. Though if it’s matched or made on my behalf with someone else’s money, it’s hard to say no.
Typically, my favorite way to get paid for market research participation is electronically, which AGC offers through PayPal. In my experience, the transfer hasn’t been longer than a few days.
This way also protects you with an electronic paper trail so you always know you’ve been paid what you’re owed. It also makes it easy for me to keep records, since I’ve joined several other panels, and I’ve never had a dispute with any medical market research company with whom I’ve worked.
InCrowd is a unique medical market research company that offers short, easy surveys and fast payouts.
Honorarium for this survey panel is generally pretty high; expect a range of $2-3 per minute or more.
Eligible Specialties & Clinicians
- PAs of all specialties
- NPs of all specialties
- Pretty much all other board-certified or board-eligible physicians
Once your account has been active for two or more business days and your balance has reached $25 or more, you can request a payout. Your options include an immediate cash PayPal transfer or Tango gift cards.
The PayPal transfers go through right away and are easy to request. I’ve never personally redeemed a Tango gift card through InCrowd, but I’d be surprised if the process wasn’t just as seamless.
M3 Global Research
M3 Global Research offers a wide range of surveys that vary in length from a few minutes to an hour long for many physician specialists as well as residents, PAs, NPs, and other healthcare professionals.
They also have a very intuitive and user friendly interface, along with some pretty innovative features, like the M3 Wallet. There, you can request payment immediately or save your earned honorarium for a larger payout later.
Payment options include a physical check, prepaid debit card, or prepaid virtual debit card, with more payment options available in the future. Note that the specific availability depends on your country.
