Results: The mean score of occupational motivation was 3.33 ± 0.52 (out of 4), which indicated medium to high occupational motivation among the surgical technologists. Among the internal factors, the nature of work and appreciation of employees were the most and the least important factors respectively. Among the external factors, salary and wage were the most important factors and supervision and the work policy had the least important factor.
