What is Medical Illustration?

Medical Illustration is the juxtaposition of two worlds, a perfect balance of the visual formula for science and art.

From the moment students enter medical school, they are learning from images medical illustrators have created. From the very basic to the extreme complexities of medicine, medical illustrators illustrate anatomy in its myriad states, from normal to the diseased, to help spread awareness and knowledge. Medical illustrators are the storytellers in the health industry. It is our job to make sure our audience clearly understands what is involved when you are finished looking at an image, looking at a sculpture, watching a video, or pulling a kidney out of a hat, kidding. We need to know how to tell a story for every single person's needs no matter the education level.

The value of having a trained medical illustrator from one of the accredited programs brings value from viewing a surgery from the surgeon's perspective, feeling the living breathing tissue from an animal on the operating table, and taking med school classes among the future doctors are all achievements I can rightfully claim as developments in making the perfect magic act. There are about 1000 medical illustrators in the continental United States, and only four accredited graduate programs who train them. We are the few magicians able to mix science and art together, and it truly is magic.


Avoid potential problems surfacing by using a trained medical illustrator for your accurate healthcare and creative needs.
