Course content

Medical art encompasses a wide range of applications from patient communication and information to medical teaching and training. It is also used by the pharmaceutical industry to aid in explanation of their products and by television companies in the production of documentaries.

This taught Masters course employs highly specialised tutors from scientific backgrounds alongside experienced medical art supervisors.

Created in response to the need for transition from a variety of undergraduate degrees to specialist practice within the contemporary medical art field., our course will provide expertise for those intending to work at the leading edge of the medical art profession and is a supportive environment to nurture innovative and creative ideas. Course lecturers work closely with the NHS, the Institution of Medical Illustrators and the Medical Artists’ Association.

This course will benefit artists with specific interests in the medical and forensic applications of visual art.

It will also provide a postgraduate qualification for police artists, and medical artists working in the NHS, who are seeking validation or further specialisation of existing skills to conform with medico-legal procedures and for registration with relevant professional bodies.
