Artists

Artist renderings in our surgical atlas were produced by the Chair of the Biomedical Communications Graduate Program and students and faculty within that program.

The world's first degree in medical illustration was awarded by Southwestern Medical School in 1947. Currently, this is one of five accredited medical illustration programs in North America. For those accepted into the program, a Master of Arts degree in Biomedical Communications—Biomedical Illustration is offered by Southwestern School of Health Professions at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. The program is two years in length, and a maximum of seven students is now accepted annually.

The program is offered through the Department of Biomedical Communications, and courses are taught by faculty of The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, Southwestern Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and Southwestern School of Health Professions. The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs and the Association of Medical Illustrators. Mr. Lewis E. Calver has been Program Chairman since 1980.

The program is interdisciplinary. It provides opportunities for development of special knowledge and skills in the application of communication arts and technology to the health sciences. Study of human anatomy, cell biology, neurobiology, and pathology is combined with experience in anatomic, surgical, editorial, and advertising illustration; computer graphics and animation; graphic design; multimedia production; interactive computer-assisted instruction; and instructional design. Additional skills may also be developed in biological illustration, three-dimensional media production, exhibit design, and photography.
