Gain a recognised professional qualification, or embark on postgraduate professional studies Clinical Photography certificates are officially approved by both CAMIP and IMI Perfect for existing or trainee medical illustrators
This course provides continuing professional development, including specialist knowledge and skills, for people who are already in work as medical illustrators.
It forms part of the Medical Illustration Programme of work-based, distance-learning awards.
This award is based on learning through work-based assignments, so it is really only suitable for those who are employed in a healthcare environment that gives them access to the clinical situations, specialist equipment and workplace supervisors necessary for the successful completion of those assignments.
You will study:
The legal and ethical issues encountered in medical illustration
Anatomy and physiology
Computer skills for medical illustration
you will also carry out practical assignments in:
Black and white and colour illustration
Teaching poster production
For Graphic Designers for Health Care, the Graduate Certificate award constitutes evidence that you have undertaken this professional development course and that you have achieved all of its learning outcomes. It bears witness to the fact that you have learned, and can practise, key professional skills and that you have acquired and critically reflected on a professionally relevant body of knowledge.
The Postgraduate Certificates will provide evidence that you have acquired all of the learning outcomes associated with the Graduate Certificate awards and that you have given additional attention to the more academic, theoretical issues in medical illustration, taking a more questioning, critical and analytical approach to theories, practice-based issues and case studies. This award could also qualify you to progress to a Postgraduate Diploma and, eventually, a Masters qualification if the demand justifies the development of these further awards by the university.
