Graphic designers lack the specific scientific knowledge to portray the human body and medical procedures accurately. A Medical Illustrator can work directly with your medical expert, saving you project time. Why invest money in beautiful artwork, only to correct it – at substantial cost – later? A Medical Illustrator gets it right.
A Medical Illustrator is a specialized professional artist. Extensive training at the Master’s degree level in anatomy, physiology, and medical procedures ensures that your illustrations and animations are scientifically accurate. Like physicians, Medical Illustrators have observed surgery and even dissected cadavers as part of their hands-on education.
A Medical Illustrator can prepare your brochures, slides, charts, and other visual instructional materials, draw freehand or with instruments, in media ranging from pencil to computer software. The work can begin from a concept or from a variety of specific “references” you supply. Some examples are a journal article, textbook passage, Web site material, existing illustration, animation storyboard, viewing a surgical procedure, or examining a medical device. The artwork can be used for your patient education materials, medical textbooks, medical journals, continuing medical education, advertisements, and medical evidence in court.
