Medical tourism summit

Virtually unheard of a decade ago, medical tourism is becoming an increasingly common aspect of modern medical practise.

Cheap air travel and the spread of medical knowledge and technology has meant more people than ever before are willing to seek treatment overseas, lured by lower costs or cutting edge expertise and techniques.

The Medical Tourism 2014 Summit is being held next month to explore rapid growth in medical tourism and its impact on the Australian health system.

It will look at factors driving Australians to seek treatment offshore, as well as the flow of patients coming to Australia.

Speakers will include NIB Health Fund CEO Mark Fitzgibbon, Melbourne IVF medical director Lyndon Hale, Epworth Group medical director Professor John Catford and Global Health Travel, Thailand managing director Cassandra Italia.

The Summit is to be held on 20 and 21 November at Rendezvous Grand Hotel, Melbourne.
