    A degree in Biology with an interest (or experience) in forensic or health sciences is what you basically need to consider a medical illustration career. It is unlikely that you’ll be hired to illustrate anatomy books because those have already been done.

    However, there are others areas where medical illustrators / 2D & 3D modelers / digital animators are employed including advertising, television, patient education, medical journals, veterinary, dental, and legal markets, forensic investigation, interactive anatomy course development and medical trade shows. These are all contemporary offshoots of the core medical illustration career.

    Of course, you will need a strong understanding of human anatomy and physiology to work in any of these fields. It’s a required education and starts with a good A&P textbook.
