I'm not in this field but O*net may be a helpful resource that can provide job description, skills, education, salary, etc.. You can also search on related careers using the "Career Cluster" drop down to compare and contrast salaries and education requirements. Here's a link to results for a search using medical & rehabilitation.


The O*NET Program is the nation's primary source of occupational information. Central to the project is the O*NET database, containing hundreds of standardized and occupation-specific descriptors on almost 1,000 occupations covering the entire U.S. economy. The database, which is available to the public at no cost, is continually updated from input by a broad range of workers in each occupation. The Occupational Information Network (O*NET) is developed under the sponsorship of the U.S. Department of Labor/Employment and Training Administration

Physical therapist and occupational therapist are closely related. The job of both is to help the patient get to the level where they can perform tasks of daily living. Occupational therapist are more focused on helping patients to perform those tasks in hopes of returning to work or determining if the patient can work. Occupational therapists help people perform the daily tasks needed both for their daily living who have sustained an injury or may have a chronic condition .
