Institute of Tourism Studies launches module in medical tourism

 

The aim is to target the medical tourism niche market as part of its objective to embark on new areas of study to diversify the hospitality industry and to prepare students for challenges that the industry will face in the near future.

The module is a new development niche that will be offered as part of the diploma in travel and tourism operations. It will provide course participants a general understanding of the medical tourism industry, plus preparing and training them in different aspects of medical tourism with respect to travel and tourism operations.

Pierre Fenech of the Institute of Tourism Studies says, “This falls in line with the strategy of ITS, which is that of being forward-looking to the developments within the tourism sector, and ready for what the industry is demanding.”
