The Association of Medical Illustrators (AMI) will be holding their annual conference at the Mayo Client at the end of July. This is a high anticipated annual event for medical illustrators around the country, and it’s been happening since 1945. You might think that medical illustration is no longer needed in a time where nearly everyone has a camera readily available on the phone in your pocket, so what could a group of medical illustrators have to talk about for three days?
The conference is a great time for medical illustrators to learn about new technologies and techniques being put to use in the field. While cameras are readily available to almost anyone, they can’t do everything a medical illustrator can. We can build models, examples, and bring a hypothesis to life using sculpting, drawing, and even computer animation. During AMI2014, there will be 9 workshops, 50 (or more!) talks, and 12 themed sessions over four days. It’s an amazing time for our industry to be learning about how we can better meet the needs of our clients with medical illustration.
