when a medical term or sickness is searched it'd be convenient to have a source more relevant than Wikipedia
this would be a great tool for people researching,

-medicine
-anatomy
-psychology
-pharmaceuticals
-diseases
-orthopedics

and could benefit many medical professionals.
due to Wikipedia not being reliable i think that other sources like pub-med would be very appreciated.

Wikipedia is being improved upon by medical professionals all the time and many medical articles have been/are being peer reviewed. Whilst I agree it is not a perfect source of information, you need to consider exactly who will be searching on DDG. For patients, getting a list of specific pubmed articles may not be the way to go. Maybe this is better as a bang and not an instant answer, which as it turns out !pubmed already is...
