Completion of the twenty-one-month curriculum in Medical Illustration from the Augusta University results in a Master of Science in Medical Illustration degree granted through the College of Graduate Studies. Augusta University is part of the University System of Georgia.
In addition to being skilled artists, medical illustrators must be knowledgeable in anatomy and the health sciences. This is because an illustrator's work, unlike a photograph, must often show what cannot be directly observed in order to best communicate an idea or complex concept. Therefore, an understanding of basic medical subjects is essential. In addition to studying communication theory and illustration techniques, our students also take graduate-level science courses, such as gross anatomy and cell biology, with the medical students.
Our program is accredited by the Committee on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs.The program was the very first to be granted accreditation, in 1967, and has maintained continuous accreditation ever since. Our accreditation was renewed in 2010, for the full term of 8 years.
