Occupational Therapist Working Conditions



Occupational therapists held about 114,600 jobs in 2014. Fifty percent of occupational therapists worked in offices of physical, occupational and speech therapists, and audiologists, or in hospitals. Others worked in schools, nursing homes, and home health services in 2014.

Occupational therapist working conditions include spending a lot of time on their feet working with patients. They also may be required to lift and move patients or heavy equipment. Additionally, many work in multiple facilities and have to travel from one job to another.

Most occupational therapists worked full time in 2014. About 1 out of 4 worked part time. They may work nights or weekends, as needed, to accommodate patientsí schedules.
