[Purpose] A questionnaire survey of the status of newcomer education conducted at rehabilitation facilities was conducted to clarify the actual conditions and issues in newcomer education. [Participants and Methods] Questionnaires were mailed to 300 rehabilitation facilities in Tokyo with at least 5 physical therapists, and 58 facilities responded. Newcomer education was compared between facilities with an achievement level of 7 or higher (high achievement group) those with an achievement level of 6 or lower (low achievement group), and the fields of work were divided into four groups for comparison. [Results] The high achievement group was significantly higher in terms of number of staff, establishment of an education department, completion of the newcomer training program by all instructors, and the use of evaluation forms. [Conclusion] Since the environment differs from facility to facility, it is necessary to consider methods of educating newcomers that are suited to the environment of each facility.
