Yup, that's what I meant. Mostly young docs out of school until they get some experience, I think.

Don't know about the health care system but there are certainly some private hospitals that are equal to the best you will find in any other country. 

I rarely need to go but Bangkok Pattaya hospital has been professional and effective. It's not cheap, but it's good. 

 

Many of the doctors seem to have done postgrad in USA.

I would say any health system that only costs 30 baht for Thais is a pretty good one. Having said that, it's a bit more of a lottery for farangs.

I'm quite happy to pay 300 baht for a GP consultation. Shelling out hundreds of thousands for a hospital stay of any length is a different kettle of fish.

Agree. I've used the bkk hospital in both Phuket and Bangkok and was impressed with the service that was far better and more professional than I have ever received at home. That includes our private hospitals.

 

Expensive, yes, but only because at home either medicare and/or your private health care is paying direct.

Healthcare in Thailand can be excellent or very poor, depending where you go.

VARIABLE TRAVEL MEDICAL RISK
Significant variation of travel medical risk: Quality medical care, emergency services, and dental care is available from selected providers in major cities, including prescription drugs.  Elsewhere: availability of these services may be limited. Similarly, exposure to food, water-borne or potentially life-threatening infectious diseases may vary.

Medical assistance commonly required: In major cities: Selection of quality providers. Evacuation sometimes required. Elsewhere: Selection of best care available. Case monitoring. Transfer to a higher quality facility. Moderate and severe illness/injury may require evacuation.
