The phenomenon of medical tourism has gained tremendous importance over the last many years. Medical tourism simply refers to the movement of people looking for some form of medical treatment from one country to another generally because of lower costs or for access to better healthcare facilities.

Many latest surveys have shown that the South East Asian region is becoming the world hub for medical tourists. Tourists from countries such as the United States, United Kingdom, Middle East and many European countries are visiting South East Asia for various types of medical treatments ranging from allopathic therapies to traditional / alternate medicine. Within the South East Asian region Thailand, India and Singapore are the three most visited countries by medical tourists. Some reports have also suggested that Malaysia too has started to draw patients from across the globe and is all set to becoming a leader in medical tourism by 2019. All these Asian countries have great potential and offer many advantages to people visiting them for healthcare treatments. Some advantages are the availability of highly qualified English speaking doctor's, availability of international standard hospitals, lower costs etc. Countries such as India also offer Ayurvedic / herbal treatments which attract a lot of foreign tourists.

Medical Tourism has become an industry worth billions of dollars and every country is trying to make the most of it for pumping foreign exchange into its economy. Medical tourism has its own set of challenges which must be taken into consideration, well understood and be dealt with in the best possible manner.

The online medical tourism and healthcare marketing course conducted by the James Lind Institute offers its participants a detailed understanding of the global medical tourism industry and also teaches various important concepts related to the marketing of healthcare products.
