Structured questionnaires were used for convenience sampleing; SPSS, for descriptive statistics, t-test, and correlation analysis. Re-sults: The mean value for the extrinsic work motivation and professional commitment scores was the highest. Differences in the intrinsic work motivation and the effort and involvement on professional career as part of the professional commit-ment were significantly higher in Mainland China when compared with Taiwan. In contrast, when considering extrinsic work motivation and work satisfaction (promotion and welfare) results were significantly higher in Taiwan than Mainland China. Work motivation, professional commitment, and work satisfaction were positively correlated across the Taiwn strait. Conclusions：This investigation could act as a reference for operating room executives on both sides of the Taiwan strait to select new employees, setting of promotion guide lines, and launching of encouragement programmes.
