This project aims to provide countermeasures and suggestions for relevant departments to improve the current medical treatment behavior of international college students and improve the level of medical treatment for international students by understanding the basic conditions of medical treatment behaviors of international students in China. The related literatures of Andersen's health service utilization model were consulted through literature research method, and cluster random sampling method was adopted. In this study, a questionnaire survey was conducted on 100 overseas students. Factors such as grade, gender, family economic income, and Chinese proficiency have a significant influence on the medical behavior of international students. The higher the senior grade, women,the higher the income of the family, the greater the probability of actively seeking medical treatment. Therefore, they can meet their medical service needs by strengthening the construction of medical and health service systems in colleges and universities, strengthening medical treatment, publicizing education on disease risks, and improving the medical insurance system for international students in China. The medical behavior of international students from Jiangsu University is affected by many factors. The government should improve the construction of medical and health service system for international students and improve the service level of medical institutions. Schools should strengthen disease risk and actively seek medical attention, and school club organizations should strengthen communication with international students and improve their language communication skills to improve their adaptability and improve their health.
