Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine that deals with diseases of the liver and the digestive tract.

This task force aims to:

  • increase the quality of the current articles on gastroenterology topics by increasing their medical content while keeping them accessible to individuals with no specialty medical knowledge
  • facilitate the creation of new articles on topics in gastroenterology and hepatology
  • ensure that articles created on gastroenterology topics are well referenced, including the insertion of up-to-date links to the most recent literature
  • maintain consistency per WP:MOS on gastroenterology articles
  • increase the number of endoscopic images attached to articles
  • produce gastroenterology-themed featured articles based on the above
  • include both traditional and complementary and alternative medicine therapies for gastrointestinal illness, with appropriate focus based on the evidence
  • improve the gastroenterology bluebox {{Gastroenterology}}

Project notice[edit]

The template for marking an article as part of the Gastroenterology task force is part of the WikiProject Medicine banner, {{WPMED}}. It can be inserted into an article's talkpage with:

{{WPMED |class= |importance= |gastroenterology=yes |gastroenterology-imp= }}

The first "importance" parameter is the subject's importance to the overall field of medicine, according to the guidelines here. The importance of a subject to the field of gastroenterology should be listed with the "gastroenterology-imp" parameter.
