This is an area where a number of our members apply their creative skills, knowledge of anatomy and understanding of the three dimensional form. Medical artists produce medical, anatomical and surgical models and simulators, which are used for medical education and surgical training. These artists are skilled in modelling, casting and mould making using materials such as clay, plaster, resins and silicones. They are creative in their use and development of new materials to ensure realistic simulation of bodily tissues. Models are primarily produced for medical device manufacturing companies, teaching hospitals and university medical schools.
