Surgical Illustration + Media

Course No. BMA 352  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Joseph Pangrace | Thomas Nowacki

This studio course is an introduction to the illustration of surgical procedures and its fundamental application within the discipline of biomedical art. It is based on the belief that understanding the concepts of medical and/or veterinary surgery is essential to creating effective illustrations and other media that visually communicates the information. Students will research surgical procedures and techniques, sketch procedures in the operating room, prepare comprehensive sketches outlining visual narrative of surgical procedures, and render final illustrations/media presentations using a variety of digital media. Special access to Case Western University Hospitals will be granted and all students must follow ALL rules during medical observation; and be conscious of patient-related regulations and privacy standards. Offered spring.
