1. Let’s find out the international medical tourism coordinator.
The comprehensive definition of medical tourism helps tourists to experience tourism, leisure, and culture around the area at the same time, where they can relax and refresh patients while visiting some parts of the world for the purpose of experiencing medical benefits such as health care and treatment.
It is responsible for developing and improving Korea’s global healthcare industry and external competitiveness by supporting specific medical services to attract and manage foreign patients in the international medical market, tourism marketing, medical tourism counseling, risk management, and administration.
2. International Medical Tourism Coordinator Outlook
The rapid growth of the international medical market, including medical tourism (from $40 billion in 2004 to $100 billion in 2012), was enacted in December 2015 to provide legal and institutional support for medical overseas expansion and foreign patient attraction projects.
As of the end of April 2010, the number of registered foreign patients increased to 1,747 (medical institutions, 134 kindergartens) and manpower was required, so the government recognized global healthcare as a new growth engine field and formed departments for policy and practical support.
The increase in medical tourism-related local government projects has increased, and considering the ratio of applicants for existing jobs (about 92% to 98%) out of about 5,340 international medical tourism-related trainees, demand for additional medical or tourism-related workers is expected.
I don’t know what you mean, but it’s expected to be necessary and applied a lot. Let’s see if that’s true. According to the annual license holders, it has been on the rise again since 2016 when medical tourism was in full swing. There are only about 100 to 200 people. So it’s not explosive enough to produce 5,000 people a year.
If you look at the successful applicants by age, most of them are women in their 20s and 30s (the table below) Let’s find out if we can get a job now.
3. Employment as an international medical tourism coordinator
You have obtained a certificate. Where can I get a job?
First, search the Worknet for the Medical Tourism Coordinator. There are two job openings posted. The first announcement is to find a hospital coordination teacher at the dentist. This certificate is said to be preferred.
The second job posting below seeks a hospital coordinator. I have written down CS (Customer Service), public relations, computerization and patient management, and other in-hospital tasks as job descriptions. We give preferential treatment to the medical tourism coordinator. And my salary is 15 million won and I work 5 days a week. She gives me 1,500,000 won a month and her job is almost like a superwoman. In addition, they give preferential treatment to the coordinator certificate.
Another job posting seeks hospital coordinators for customer service, reception, medical information, and hospital desk work. If you look at the job posting, it looks like it’s just a cheap job to get an employee of the department. The same goes for other job openings.
International medical tourism coordinators were popular in the midst of expansion during the plastic surgery boom. It was when people from China, Southeast Asia, came in droves to get plastic surgery. It might have been a lot needed then. I don’t know now. Don’t they come in on their own? Why would you have to pay the international medical tourism coordinator (although it’s actually going to cost you medical care or surgery)?
The number of certificate acquisitions tells you the conclusion about the prospect of this certificate. Looking at the successful applicants by age as of 2020, most are women in their 20s and 30s. I think you are a nurse or a staff member of the hospital. The hospital asked you to obtain a certificate, or you would have obtained a certificate to improve your job performance. The figures tell us.
