Abstract(s)Culture is the framework for our beliefs and practices as a society. This includes our health beliefs and behaviours. Medical anthro - pology, as the study of culture and health, has a great deal to teach us about what we value in health, how we view disease, and how we cope with changes in our health. In this editorial, I would like to reflect on how we may use this discipline to enrich teaching and learning in family medicine in Portugal.
