To become a qualified medical artist in the UK can be achieved through studying a relevant course to a post graduate level. There are a few such courses in the UK to study medical illustration and one such postgraduate training programme is The Medical Artists’ Education Trust or MAET.
The Medical Artists Education Trust was founded in 1949 in order to gain recognition for the profession for medical artists and to provide a place where selected artists could be trained as medical artists and become trusted employees in a professional environment. The course today is carried out by tutors who progress artists both in artistic skills as well as human anatomy.
