Alpine Center introduces health tourism study course


Alpine Center and healthCare cybernetics (hCc) in Greece have joined forces to introduce a health-tourism study course to students from 30 different countries at the campus of this Swiss Business School for Hotel & Tourism Management Education.

It groups medical tourism into eight segments: medical, dental, spa and thalassotherapy), wellness, sports, culinary, accessible, and assisted residential tourism. Dr. Constantine Constantinides, hCc’s owner, will teach the course. Constantine Constantinides informs us that a health tourism-related MBA will soon be launched. The school launched a new two-year course in spa management in 2008. Alpine Center has for two decades been a leading hotel and tourism management school in Europe and a leader in developing and offering quality, cutting-edge programmes of study.

It will also host the International Health Tourism Research Institute whose mission includes conducting industry and market research by academic staff members and supervised students. Research results and findings will be published in both academic and industry journals.

healthCare cybernetics (hCc) provides knowledge, analysis and strategic thought on healthcare.  Based in Athens, it plans to move to Dubai, but retain an Athens base for projects.
