Globally estimated at $60 billion dollars annually medical tourism is one of the fastest growing industries. The importance for facilitators to receive advanced education has become imperative as more insurance companies and employers implement medical tourism and more patients travel globally for care.

Known for setting industry standards the MTA (Medical Tourism Association) has created a certification for industry professionals. Whether you're an experience professional or new to the industry with our innovative Certified Medical Tourism Specialist Certification you will gain the knowledge and understanding of the best practices in medical tourism and international patient services. You will be set apart from the competition by demonstrating your specialized expertise and commitment to the fast growing industry.

The most recent 2013 MTA Patient Survey revealed that most medical tourists who traveled overseas using a facilitator were not very satisfied with regards to the facilitator’s medical knowledge, availability, and attention to detail.

Consumers are now becoming more knowledgeable when it comes to choosing a facilitator. They're looking for those with a good reputation and an understanding on what the patient needs are.
