The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between the perception of psychological empowerment and career satisfaction in the context of health workers. Another aim of this study is to determine whether there are significant differences in the psychological empowerment and career satisfaction perceptions of the participants according to their socio-demographic characteristics. For this purpose, a survey was conducted with 684 employees working in public hospitals in Ankara. In the questionnaire, two different scales were used, which are widely used in studies in our country to measure socio-demographic questions, psychological empowerment and career satisfaction, and whose validity and reliability analyzes were made. The data obtained were analyzed with the help of descriptive statistics, T Test, ANOVA and Correlation Test. As a result of the study, a "weak" relationship was found between the meaning, competence and self determination dimensions of psychological empowerment and career satisfaction, and a "high" relationship was found with the impact dimension. However, it was determined that "employees younger than 21 years of age" had lower perceptions of psychological empowerment and career satisfaction than employees in other age groups and employees working as "physiotherapists" had lower perceptions of psychological empowerment and career satisfaction than employees in other occupational groups.
