I am currently a Masters student in Biomedical Communications at the University of Toronto; the only one of its kind in Canada. I completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences at McMaster University that focused on problem solving and collaborative approaches in finding solutions to health related issues. I also have training from OCAD University in the Masters of Fine Arts stream. The combination of my educational experiences has taught me to consider multiple approaches and strive for innovative solutions.
We as medical illustrators, are trained in both visual media and sciences that ranges from anatomy, immunology, neuroanatomy, and so forth. Medical illustration has grown from traditional textbook illustration to include visual tools such as design, animations, websites, interactive applications, and more. We work alongside various health professionals and researchers to create visual tools in disseminating information in a meaningful and engaging way. Learn more at: Association of Medical Illustrators.
