It may be useful to add a related Wikia section on this wiki. See Wikia:Category:Science for some which may have a similar theme to this one. Also, see Wikia:Category:English for other English language Wikia. Angela 00:03, 28 Jan 2005 (PST)
"Or by this other way, whose name I need help with:"[edit source]
How about "treatment" or "treatment method," something along those lines.
Wikia Blogs[edit source]
This wiki is included in our new Wikia Blogs feature.

Cut 'n' Paste[edit source]
Since there are only 59 articles as I write this, and since Wikipedia is open source, can I cut and paste good articles from Wikipedia here for the Medicine project? TeamZissou 05:45, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
- Yes, that's allowed, but you need to adhere to the license. You should also cite the Wikipedia authors. For pages with fewer than 50 edits, you can do this using special:export on Wikipedia to export the page with full history and then import it here. However, a lot of work is needed to clear the pages up as they will use templates that aren't needed here and link to pages that will never exist on a medicine wiki. The clean up is important else the site ends up a mess of red links and broken bits! Angela (talk)
Changes to the Wikia[edit source]
I've temporarily taken custodianship of the wikia as of June 24th 2014 in order to update the theme and work on some articles in an attempt to kick start the community. Under previous administration, the wikia focused primarily on selected diseases (primarily Diabetes) and clinical medicine. As clinical medicine is limited to practising procedures, usually 20 years behind the field, I've decided to add more focus to both clinical medicine and medical research. If you have any questions feel free to ask!
