Medical Tourism in Philippines

The Philippines has been growing as a destination for medical tourism. Procedures can be performed at a fraction of the amount that a patient would spend on the same procedure in the US or Europe. Philippine medical and nursing curricula are more challenging than in many in Southeast Asia, and many Filipino doctors have acquired their postgraduate or fellowship training from well-known institutions in the US, the UK and other developed countries.

  1. Interesting post. South Korea is also another for medical tourism destination but more in the cosmetic surgery line. Many visitors come to South Korea from Japan and China as they can get it for a fraction of the cost and the doctors are better. Interesting how far people will travel.
