[bioontology-support] Coverage of medical specialties in ontologies

Doesn't seem at all unreasonable but I am not aware of anything like this.
That doesn't mean that it doesn't exist though. Seems like it would be an
ontology of "medical professionals" with references to clinical
vocabularies like SNOMED.

Subject: [bioontology-support] Coverage of medical specialties in


A number of biomedical ontologies, such as SNOMED-CT, represent the
concept of "medical specialty" and its many subclasses. Are there any such
ontologies that contain properties along the lines of "specializesIn" or
"hasSpecialty" or "treatedBySpecialist" - that is, properties that relate
specialties or specialists to particular diseases, conditions, surgical
procedures, tests, etc.? I'd welcome any insights or ideas about this
question. Thanks.
