Hospitals in Thailand

In case of emergency, while taking the TESOL course in Thailand, the TEFL trainees can get quick access adequate medical treatment available throughout Thailand. In Bangkok, excellent facilities exist for routine, long term and emergency medical care. The TESOL trainees can resort to hospitals and clinics run by well-trained doctors and nurses in times of medical help. In cases of emergencies the TEFL candidates should not get panic stricken and must keep in mind that an ambulance is just a call away. Also to the relief of the TESOL students, it is a boon that the medical expenses in Thailand are only a fraction of the expenses that you might incur in Europe or United States.

Thailand has over the years become a hotspot in medical tourism by extending excellent medical facilities to mostly European patients. So for all the upcoming trainees who are planning for the TESOL course in Thailand must not worry about medical or health check-up or treatment as the standard of treatment and technology is very high. The TEFL trainees can clearly see that the hospital environment is clearly more hospitable.

The TESOL trainees would find that there are few medical hospitals in Thailand which find favor among the foreigners for their renowned medical facilities. Bumrungrad Hospital in Sukhumvit area is very popular among the residents in the Sukhumvit area. However Bangkok General Hospital and Bangkok Nursing Home Hospital are also very popular. In fact Bumrungrad hospital attracts twice as many patients as India. This further underlines the fact that Thailand is the preferred destination among the westerners.

If you have enrolled for the TEFL course in Thailand and before you set off for the country, in case you want to do some research about the medical facilities here, www.MediThai.net provides all the information an ESL teacher needs on the medical facilities available in Bangkok and other major cities of the country. It is an independent body with no affiliation to any dentist, clinic or intermediary medical service provider.

The TESOL students can get information of vaccination and other health precautions from CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention). The hotline for international travelers is 1-877-FYI-TRIP (1-877-394-8747). The internet site for CDC is http://wwwn.cdc.gov/travel/default.aspx. Further health information for travelers including infectious diseases can be obtained from http://www.who.int/ith/en.

All the TEFL trainees before coming here for the TESOL course must remember that there is an epidemic of HIV infection and AIDS in Thailand. Heterosexual transmissions account for most infections but HIV is also on the rise among men who have sex with other men. HIV is also very common among prostitutes of both sexes and injection drug abusers.

Caution for the TEFL trainees: The CDC, WHO and Thai authorities have confirmed human cases of H5N1 strain of avian influenza, commonly known as 'bird flu'. All your TESOL travelers to Thailand and other countries affected by the virus should avoid poultry farms and contact with live animals in food markets. Please note that CDC and WHO recommend eating only fully cooked poultry and eggs.

An affordable, memorable, informative, fantastic experience. The course manager went above and beyond to help us settle into Thailand, and went even further to help us find work. In regards to the instructor... I don't imagine you could find anyone better. She was personable, fun, informative, and more. She pushes you to be your best!

I have many good experience with the course. For example, I met many people have the same passion with me and the trainer is very awesome. I have a chance to practice with the students from kindergarten to high school. After that I receive many feedbacks from my classmates and the trainer who helped me a lot to improve my confidence. I really appreciate it.
