UCSF outreach[edit]

January 7–11th of 2013 Jake Orlowitz and James Heilman spent the week at UCSF giving lectures on the significance of Wikipedia and Medicine and running hands on editing sessions. We had the opportunity to meet with people within program development to discuss the possibility of integrating Wikipedia editing into the curriculum. Further details here
