A Wikipedia wizard and blogger
Bertalan Mesko combines being an editor and administrator of Wikipedia with medical student studies, as Tiago Villanueva found out
- By: Tiago Villanueva
In 2005 I started editing the Hungarian Wikipedia and later became an administrator. In October 2006 I became an administrator in the English Wikipedia. Now I maintain the medicine portal, medicine wikiproject, and medical collaboration of the week, and I'm the creator and maintainer of the medical genetics wikiproject.
In my opinion, no. I can tell you only how Hungarian medical education works. To become a physician in Hungary, you have to finish 12 semesters. Human genetics takes one semester and clinical genetics takes another. Genetics has a role in nearly all medical specialties. That's why I think genetics should form a much bigger component of medical studies.
