Aim of Study: The aim of the present study was to investigate the level of job satisfaction of physiotherapists in Palestine and to how much extent those levels are intra-correlated.

Methods: Researchers used the cross-sectional descriptive analytical approach, where data was collected through a questionnaire. The target population was physiotherapists in Palestine. A sample of 60 physiotherapists was conveniently selected. Program of SPSS was used to analyze data, where means were extracted, in addition to percentages and standard deviations to answer study questions.

Results: The research results showed that the overall mean of the sample responses on the main scope was (2.59). This means that the research sample of physiotherapists confirmed that the overall satisfaction level with their profession is low. Further, it was found that there is a strong relationship between each domain and the overall level of satisfaction. The most effective domain on the overall satisfaction level was the leadership growth as viewed by the physiotherapist, then comes the work environment. The least effective domain was salaries, promotions, and incentives.

Conclusions: The findings of the present research confirmed consistently the results of some other previous research findings in relation to level of satisfaction of the studied physiotherapists. Researching a further bigger sample in size is necessary to come out with a big picture of results.
