Background/Objectives: This study aimed to determine the relationships between quality of life and job stress among occupational therapists who worked at rehabilitation hospitals in South Korea. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This study conducted a survey of 295 occupational therapists working at 21 rehabilitation hospitals located in Seoul and Gyeonggi Province in South Korea. Findings:The results showed that the correlations between quality of life and job stress had statistically significant differences in all studied sub-domains. Furthermore, the higher the job stress domain scores, the lower the quality of life, which indicated a negative correlation. Application/Improvements: In the future, it is necessary to study interventions from individual and organizational dimensions to reduce job stress among occupational therapists and improve their quality of life.
