Welcome to this medicine task force. If you have any questions about articles or are generally seeking advice, you're encouraged to ask at the Medicine talk page, the centralized point for discussion, thank you.

This task force intends to focus on articles that deal with the intersection between society and medicine that are already covered under WP:MED's scope. We aim to improve the quality and reliability of these articles, maintain the high standards of sourcing, and ensure that these articles are given the attention they deserve.

Any editors, qualified or unqualified, are encouraged to participate! (Drop a message on the talk page, or add your name below!)


This task force only covers articles that are already under WP:MED (WP:MED?)

Articles that are included in this scope include those about:

  • People: including biographies of researchers, doctors and patients
  • Organisations: including medical schools, charities, and other related organisations and companies already included under WP:Med.
  • Education: including medical schools and universities
  • Publications and Law, including medical journals, books
  • Other articles may be included as necessary, particularly those that focus on attention in the media or need temporary attention from WP:Med. Please list these articles as 'High' importance.


Below are a list of interested Wikipedians. Don't forget to also add your name to the main list of WP:MED members!
