Carlos A.G. Machado, MD

Brushes as Teaching Tools in Medical Education:

Thinking as an Artist, Painting as a Physician.

In his presentation Dr. Machado will share how his interest in educational illustration evolved, how he came to contribute to the Netter Collection and Atlas of Human Anatomy, and his overall experience as a professional medical illustrator.  He will also present examples of his creative process starting with careful planning and meticulous research, moving on to the preliminary sketches and then the completion of the illustration up to its prepress stage.  Finally, Dr. Machado will discuss the challenges of creating medical illustrations that are precise and realistic, while also pleasing to the aesthetic senses.
