I became a Professor Emeritus after serving 29 years as a recreational therapy faculty member at Indiana University. I'm a long-time Hoosier, having grown up in Hanover, Indiana. My RT practitioner work was in psych/mental health. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, my first faculty position was at the University of North Texas. RT has been a wonderful profession for me as I have had the opportunity to serve as an author and national leader.

Salaries of CTRSs, MTs, OTs

The July 2010 issue of Health-Care Careers e-Letter provides an extensive listing of salaries of health-care professionals.

The average salary for CTRSs was listed at $46,500. For music therapists the average was almost the same, at $46,417. It was the occupational therapists who made the highest salaries. The average salary of an OT was $66,400.

And we wonder why students leave our profession to go into OT? The reason seems clear to me!

Where are their numbers coming from? Even though the average is lower than OT, it's almost $8,000 higher than the average salary reported in the 2004 NCTRC survey ($38,956). I get inflation but it's only been 6 yrs and we're in a recession. Just curious.
