What is Medical Illustration?

Medical illustration is a unique and highly specialized genre of art that seeks to visually communicate biomedical processes and concepts. A medical illustrator is not only an artist, but a highly trained visual communication specialist. They possess the artistic ability and the scientific knowledge necessary to translate complex medical and scientific information into images that clarify and educate.

 

Medical illustrators are found in a variety of fields and are essential to the process of bringing science and medicine to life. They often work with public and patient education initiatives, research labs, in academic settings, hospitals, and institutes.

How does one become a medical illustrator?

There are currently five accredited medical illustration graduate programs in North America, with each program accepting fewer than 15 students a year. Each program includes advanced coursework in instructional design, human anatomy and pathology, and extensive training in specialized artistic techniques.
