Project noticeEdit

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

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

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