The Wikipedia software recognizes inline PMID codes for life sciences and biomedical articles and automatically creates a search link to PubMed, much as it does for ISBNs for books (see Wikipedia:ISBN). No template is required to enable this feature.

It is important when making a link to have only a space after "PMID" followed by the numbers; do not use the colon which is present in PubMed citations.
