See the results of our 2016 Physical Therapy Salary Survey and how your pay compares to other PT professionals around the country
Every year at ADVANCE, we painstakingly gather data from across the country to produce our eagerly awaited Salary Survey. This time, 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 1,023 rehabilitation professionals contributed through the ADVANCE for Physical Therapy & Rehab Medicine website between Nov. 1, 2015, and Jan. 31, 2016. The participants included 669 physical therapists, 292 physical therapist assistants, 31 professors, and another 31 respondents who classified themselves as “other.” Our national results provide in-depth information about physical therapy salaries across the United States.
Over the next several weeks, we’ll also roll 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 contributors nationwide and we hope you enjoy reading the results.
