This studio course is an introduction to the illustration of surgical procedures and its fundamental application within the discipline of biomedical art.

Students will research surgical procedures and techniques, sketch procedures in the operating room, prepare comprehensive sketches outlining visual narrative of surgical procedures, and render final illustrations/media presentations using a variety of digital media. Special access to Case Western University Hospitals will be granted and all students must follow ALL rules during medical observation; and be conscious of patient-related regulations and privacy standards. Required of junior Biomedical Art majors. No electives. Offered spring.
