Would you like to know more about the highest paying countries for physical therapists? Insider Monkey recently published an article about this topic giving us some very useful tips. Physical therapists or PTs are there to help people who are recovering from accidents or after a surgery, or have some disabling conditions, e.g. heart disease, fractures, low-back pain, etc. Their main goal is to restore functions and mobility, relieve pain and prevent further disabilities. Also, they supervise PT assistants and PT aides, and are a part of a much larger team of doctors who are deciding on the patient’s treatment.
In my country there is a lack of physial therapists as large numbers of people go to work to the western countries. A good therapist, who is really professional, can earn quite a lot of money in my country, too. Working with people is rewarding and challenging, especially in this profession where the success of the treatment largely depends on how the patient responds to his or her doctor.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three highest paying countries for physical therapists.
The first country is Bermuda. Even though Bermuda is in the first place when it comes to average salaries, it is only in the 6th in our list of highest paying countries for physical therapists. The difference in salaries is almost the same as in Australia, and it accounts for as the British overseas territory. The language is English, too, but you can also speak Portuguese. Thinking of Bermuda says this is a perfect place for you if your hobby is snorkeling, and it is actually quite near to the USA. The second country is Switzerland, which is not surprising for me. You’ll get almost $1,500 extra should you move to the land of cheese and chocolate. Jokes aside, it is a common fact that Switzerland is one of the most stable countries and its neutral position has helped it a lot over the years. The last country on our list should be Denmark. How do you like this? In this European country you would be earning $2,489 more than the common people. It’s almost double the average Danish salary. It sounds almost too good to be true, but the figures speak for themselves.
