Jeni,

Depends on what you want to do, exactly. I think interlinking some  
prevalent medical vocabularies to dbpedia entries is a wonderful  
project!

What kinds of links would be called for is a good question; most of  
these vocabularies do not natively use the RDF semantic model. In HCLS  
Terminology WG, we've mostly been focused on using SKOS predicates for  
interoperability.

Would you be interested in talking to the HCLS Terminology group (I  
chair it) about it on an upcoming Thursday morning call? I predict  
you'd get a lot of interest and support -- even help, if you like.

John
