What is medical illustration?

Medical illustration visually communicates the health and life sciences. It is the key to connecting researchers, educators and other experts with their target audiences in effective, accurate and memorable ways.

Medical illustrators are thoroughly trained in both biological science and visual communication, and are professionally equipped for fields in anatomy, pharmaceuticals, litigation services, science publishing, patient education, and beyond. Their work builds a vital bridge between science and design, presenting expert content that is both understandable and appealing.
