2016 Occupational Therapy (OT) Salary Survey

See the results of our 2016 Occupational Therapy Salary Survey and how your pay compares to other OT professionals around the country

Every year at ADVANCE, we painstakingly gather data from across the country to produce our eagerly awaited Salary Survey. This year, we crunched the extensive numbers to produce revealing charts that break down salary figures by gender, region, degree, experience, location, role, and more! A total of 1,083 respondents, including 760 occupational therapists and 323 occupational therapy assistants, contributed through the ADVANCE for Occupational Therapy Practitioners website between Nov. 1, 2015, and Jan. 31, 2016. Our national results provide in-depth information about occupational therapy salaries across the United States.

Over the next several weeks, we’ll also be rolling out detailed region-specific PDFs below that break down the data by Northeast, Mid-Atlantic/Lower Great Lakes, South, Midwest, and West, so stay tuned! ADVANCE thanks our dedicated respondents nationwide and we hope you enjoy reading the results.
