Abstract : This study focuses on the concept of medical tourism, its significance and implications for the Jordanian health sector. Patients travel to Jordan to seek elective, less expensive medical procedures while having a vacation. Other factors that promote medical tourism include better quality of care, shorter queues, exotic locations, culture… etc. The Medical Liability Law, passed last year, further encouraged more patients to seek treatment in Jordan. Medical tourism contribution to Jordanian GDP is noteworthy; providing economic growth and employment opportunities. Though medical tourism received great recognition, little is said about specific concerns like brain drain of health workers and incurring high costs on Jordanian citizens. This issue clearly needs further attention
