Health tourism focuses primarily on physical health and also improves mental and spiritual well-being and increases the capacity of people to meet their needs and better performance in their environment and society. Education and training in health tourism is very important because it reduces medical errors and increases the satisfaction of health tourists. Recently, health tourism as well as health tourism training have been negatively affected by the COVID-19 epidemic. The outbreak of coronavirus in January 2020 has severely affected many industries. Tourism education provided by universities, which requires close links with the tourism industry, has also been strongly influenced. The prevalence of COVID-19 is a major barrier to the tourism industry and education system. Although tourism education has changed from face-to-face education to online education during the COVID-19 epidemic, online education has serious constraints and cannot replace face-to-face education. In this review, we aim to investigate health tourism and health tourism education and training during the COVID-19 pandemic.
