Medical Illustrators
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Do you enjoy art and science? Then maybe you are in luck. There's a very specialized field that combines both specialties. That job is called a medical illustrator.
 
2     A medical illustrator completes a normal course load in high school. Then he or she goes on to get a college degree in art and premed. He or she will receive special training in art, biology, and computer based drawing. The field is small and competitive. Most who wish to enter it go on for a master's degree in medical illustration. This program should be accredited by the American Medical Association and focus on design, production, and computer assisted graphics.
 
3     You might be wondering exactly what a medical illustrator will do with that knowledge and training. Well, actual job placement will vary, but all medical illustrators share some things in common. A medical illustrator is trained to draw parts of the body, draw organisms, draw surgical procedures, and create models. In addition, a medical illustrator is trained to create artwork using technology. These may be used for research and publications.
