The purpose of this study was to examine the predictive power of selected intrinsic and extrinsic rewards as determinants of health occupations teachers’ work satisfaction. A perceived work rewards model of job satisfaction was used as the theoretical model. The sample consisted of all health occupations education teachers in - three southern states (N = 348). Results indicated that the combined effects of intrinsic and extrinsic variables were significant predictors of health occupations teachers’ work satisfaction. The intrinsic variable, task involvement, had the greatest influence upon work satisfaction. Two extrinsic variables, general working conditions “ and salary, were significant predictors of work satisfaction, but their contributions were less than task involvement.
