Job Description for Medical Illustrator

Medical illustration is a very large, varying field of work. A medical illustrator can be involved in many different specialties. Photographers and videographers are needed to produce visual records of a patient's medical history, which can be used for education or research. They may be needed to photograph or film patients’ specific ailments, undertake specialized forms of photography like 3D or internal imaging, specialize in bereavement or forensic imaging, or record images for publicity materials. They are also responsible for the editing of these images or films, using computer software. Alternatively, graphic designers and traditional artists create things like posters and pamphlets, visual lecture materials, corporate publications, or websites that can also be used in patient care, education, or medical research. Because of this wide variety of needs, a medical illustrator can find themselves employed at a hospital, a medical school, or a specialty publisher.
