Lithuania do not provide any programs on Medical Anthropology, but some courses are provided in universities (Vytautas Magnus university; Lithuanian University of Health Sciences; Šiauliai University). Also, during anthropological events some parts are related to Medical anthropology. I can provide with some MedAnthro researches/articles/studies done in Lithuania by Lithuanians.
