With the improvement of the medical level, rehabilitation plays an increasingly important role in the medical system. To further strengthen education in the future rehabilitation industry, the current situation of rehabilitation education program in China and Japan is hereby compared. This paper compares the differences between China and Japan based on the elements of the training mode, including training objectives, training regulation, qualification recognition, theoretical curriculum and clinical practice. It is found that there are still deficiencies in rehabilitation education in China, such as a lack of uniform regulations, confusion of training objectives and unclear sub-disciplines, which need to be improved. This study summarizes the possible direction for China’s promotion of therapist education, thereby providing a reference for the enhancement of rehabilitation education in China and other countries.
