The article introduces contemporary medical anthropology. It describes the key concepts used by anthropologists to analyse practices related to health, sickness and healing. It examines the main approaches (interpretative approach, critical approach and cultural phenomenology) and follows the methodological trend of combining micro and macro levels in one analysis. The authors show both academic and applied aspects of the young subdiscipline. They examine contemporarily researched topics like: global health, medical tourism, medical trials or new medical technologies. They sketch a picture of an important and dynamically evolving area of anthropological research.
