Launching a successful health tourism company is not an easy task which is why it is so vital for medical travel agents to learn the “best practices” of the industry. When it comes to starting a company from the ground up, you need to know what works and what does not work. This among many other reasons is why we created the Certified Medical Travel Agent online course, to eliminate the daunting time it takes to figure out this complex industry and to help startups avoid the agonizing “trial and error” phase of growing a business.  This easy-to-follow training course goes over every aspect of global healthcare and has proven to increase credibility and trustworthiness for organizations around the world.  

This certification was designed for students to access critical information while retaining key details. There are quizzes at the end of each chapter, which is a great way to learn and retain knowledge.

Becoming certified as a professional medical tourism facilitator will give you an edge in the marketplace, show your commitment to learning, and assist you in attracting more international patients. After you have completed the course, you will be awarded a medical tourism accreditation certificate. Plus, you will be able to use the Certified Medical Travel Agent logo on your promotional material and digital platforms which will establish trust amongst prospects and future clients.


Here is a short interview with one of our Facilitator Gold Members who recently took the online Certified Medical Travel Agent course:

Teresa Rook, CEO of SEF-Surgical European Facilitator, an Italian based medical tourism company

Can you tell us a little about your medical tourism agency and what you specialize in?

Our company, SEF-Surgical European Facilitator, deals with Cross Border Healthcare and Medical Tourism. We help Italian patients find the best solutions outside of Italy for surgical treatment, avoid the long waiting lists of the National Health System and use the EU Directive 24/2011.

We also help patients around the world find the best surgeons and doctors throughout Europe.

How long have you been a member of Medical Tourism Business? 

I have been a member since last year, February 2020. I have enjoyed my time as a member, in fact, I just renewed my annual membership. Plus, their patient leads make it easy for my company to connect with international patients.

What motivated you to take the online certification course? 

One of my favorite slogans is “Never stop learning!”

What made the Certified Medical Travel Agent Course stand out from other certifications?

I have other accreditations in medical travel. This certification gives you detailed advice on how to deal with clients, on things like legal issues.

How long did it take you to complete the course?

It took me three days to complete the entire course.

Was the course easy to follow, in your opinion?

Yes, it was easy to follow. Both the written parts and videos.

Did the short quizzes after each chapter help? 

Indeed, they helped me to focus and remember the main topics.

Would you recommend this online certification? If so, why?

Yes, for two reasons. You will certainly learn new and helpful information, and your clients will be more willing to deal with a Certified Agent.

How would you explain this course (and what it does) to a friend?

The course helps you to explore the different aspects of medical tourism and gives you advice to use with your clients.

What parts of the certification did you enjoy the most?

I felt like the short quizzes at the end of each chapter helped a lot.
