About

The Medical Illustration Graduate Program within the College of Allied Health Sciences at Augusta University is one of only three such programs in the country.

Overview

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.

Accreditation

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. 

Programme Structure

  • The program emphasizes anatomical and surgical illustration for print and electronic publication, as well as for projection and broadcast distribution. Because of the importance of good drawing skills, our students learn a variety of traditional illustration techniques during the first year. 
  • In addition, computer technologies and digital techniques, used to prepare both vector and raster images for print, projection, animation, and multimedia are extensively integrated into the curriculum.
