core + health-lifesci (Health and Lifesciences Extension): terms relating to healthcare, medicine and the life sciences.

Schema.org Hosted Extension: health-lifesci

Schema.org is a set of extensible schemas that enables webmasters to embed structured data on their web pages for use by search engines and other applications. For more details, see the homepage.

You are viewing the Health and Lifesciences extension within schema.org. It defines many medical terms such as MedicalCondition, AnatomicalStructure and MedicalSpecialty. See full list below.

The terms defined in this extension may be considered moderately stable, but some changes are still likely (including renaming and restructuring) through ongoing community collaboration. Organizations using this data are encouraged to join the community discussions linked here, and share their usage scenarios to help improve the schemas.

The schema.org medical vocabulary was originally created in collaboration with WikiDoc and others. Recent improvements including the migration into the health-lifesci extension has been led by the Healthcare Schema (schemed) community group at W3C. The health-lifesci schema.org extension is available for other collaborative schema.org extensions in topics centred on healthcare, medicine and the lifesciences (e.g. see also Bioschemas, and the pending proposals for describing US healthcare insurance networks).
