Thailand Medical Education Market Outlook Landscape, Growth


Growth of Top-Rated Universities in Thailand Will Increase Places for Medical Education, Medical Schools, and Licensed Physicians in the Country: Ken Research

The Thai government has made it compulsory to pursue two years of clinical training in the rural area after graduating from medicine.

Faculty of Medicine Khon Kaen University has the most places for undergraduate medical degrees.

Overview of medical education in Thailand: In Thailand, the undergraduate medical education program consists of a 6-year training program generally divided into three phases, namely Year 1 for general education, 2-3 years covering 4 and years basic medical sciences, and gain clinical experience. There are two main paths for medical training, “normal” and “rural”, differing in their admission process, place of training and place of work. Students from anywhere in the country can apply for normal training through a central selection procedure. Their training is conducted in traditional medical schools and placement is in any community hospital in the country. Students applying for the rural track are specifically selected in the provinces. Their training is carried out in regional or provincial hospitals, and the placement is in the community hospitals of the provinces or regions from which they come. The curriculum for both tracks is very similar, with clinical training usually taking place in tertiary or quaternary care hospitals and involving limited community experience.

Enablers of Medical Education in Thailand: Public health infrastructure is a critical driver of medical education and training in any country. It provides structure and an unbiased opportunity for medical students to train and educate themselves. Thailand has extensive medical infrastructure, with a total of 17,013 health care facilities as of October 2015. Of these, 56% are sub-district health promotion units, 28% are private clinics and 7% are primary care units. A total of 780, or 5%, are district hospitals; 1%, or 88, are provincial hospitals; and another 1% or 116 are “other” public hospitals. In total, the country has 336 private hospitals.

In recent years, the political push has resulted in the introduction of universal health care. This covers everyone in the country under the unified umbrella of insurance bridging private and public hospitals; eventually increasing the demand for doctors and standardizing the quality of the procedure between private and public institutions.

Another major factor that will eventually drive the demand for more doctors is that the country is aging faster than the rest of the world, according to the Thailand Development Research Institute (TDRI). According to the TDRI, an aging population will create many business opportunities, in segments such as food supply, development and sale of medical equipment, healthcare services, and childcare and home care services. The government is looking for ways to address this demographic problem.
