Medical Illustrator

by Nel Yomtov

Part of a Series: 21st Century Skills Library: Cool STEAM Careers.

While the first anatomical illustration is thousands of years old, and anatomical illustration has been practiced for hundreds of years, the medical illustration profession as we know it only began in the 1890s. After an introduction and a fascinating overview of the profession’s history, concisely written chapters explore the role of medical illustrator, tools of the trade, and how these “visual problem solvers” are trained and employed in fields from medicine to law. Yellow “Think About” text boxes appear in every chapter (each one covers an aspect of how medical illustration relates to the STEAM acronym: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics). Vibrant visuals, including scientific illustrations as well as photographs of medical illustrators at work, punctuate the straightforward text. Back matter contains a review section with questions based on the text, further reading and Web-site suggestions, a glossary, and an index.
