Medical Education Tourism is nothing but fundamental of medical tourism. Same way, doctor visiting patients is part of medical tourism.
Agni Purana offers many examples of student visiting medical expert for medical studies (example of medical education tourism).
The chapter of Ayurveda in Agni Purana starts by Dhanvantri telling about medicines to hi disciple Sushruta. Sushruta visits his Guru Dhanvantri, stays in Ashram for medical studies and that is medical tourism.
Physician visiting Patients in Agni Purana
In Agni Purana, Dhanvantri tells to Sushruta that physician attending a patient up with fever and fasting in consequence, should prescribe him such innocuous diet as Manda of fried paddy and boiled mixture. (www.indianetzone.com /48 /medicines_agni_ purana.html cited on 9/11.2018).
Doctor visiting patients is part of medical tourism only.
