What Starting Salary Can I Expect?
With an undergraduate degree and no experience, a
starting salary of $18,000 to $30,000 per year is probably a
good guess. However, understand that the starting salary
for sports medicine and exercise science professionals is
difficult — nearly impossible — to predict because of such
factors as experience, geographic location, employment
setting and market demand. It can also depend upon
licensure and certification. An advanced degree may pay
more. The best way to gauge what salary you can expect is
to speak with professionals who currently work in your field
of interest. Since geography can heavily dictate salary, it is
important that you speak with those who work where you
are job seeking. Again, it is important to emphasize that
many factors, including those mentioned above, can impact
this salary range.
