Abstract

Career development of 62 female physiotherapists was surveyed 5 years after graduation, in this fourth stage of a longitudinal study: 87.1 per cent were currently employed. Job satisfaction was high as was work involvement. About half had specialized and the majority had attended short courses, workshops and seminars. Work pressure (too much to do and too little time) was the most frequently rated work stressor. The physiotherapists reported themselves being in good health, experiencing little role conflict and moderate satisfaction from various areas of their lives. As in previous surveys they indicated that they planned to have an average of 3 children and interrupt their careers while the children were young.
