Daniel_Stuckey (2647775) writes "Starting this winter, medical students at the University of California San Francisco will be able to obtain academic credit from an unlikely source: Wikipedia.

In an experimental class beginning in December, fourth-year students under the tutelage of associate clinical professor Amin Azzam will be tasked with writing, editing, and monitoring medically relevant Wikipedia entries. Students will work from afar, with professors auditing their edits and progress. Approximately 80 entries will be reviewed: those that are popular, yet still subpar in terms of quality according to Wikipedia's own grading scheme."
