ILLM-599
1 - 6 Credits
Medical Illustration Independent Study will provide students with the ability to study in a specialized area with an individual faculty member. Students, with the assistance of a faculty adviser will propose a course of study. Medical Illustration Independent Study students must obtain permission of an instructor and complete the Independent Study Permission Form to enroll.
ILLM-506
3 Credits
This course explores animating biomedical subjects and processes in their native environment to create illustrations. Students will be asked to research and create illustrations that animate their findings. Frame by frame animation, blend shapes, non-linear deformers and “rigging” systems will be introduced to permit students to choose the most effective method for creating motion and transformation.

Cooperative Education will provide Medical Illustration students with hands-on experience in their field, directly related to a student’s major with an established studio or related business. Students will need to apply for co-ops, and interview as part of the selection process, based on available positions posted by the Co-op and Career Services Office, or found through the students’ own research. In programs where co-op is a degree requirement, students must obtain permission of their program or graduate director prior to enrollment. Co-ops are typically paid work experience, and can be part-time (150-479 total hours within the term), or full-time (480+ hours within the term). Co-ops may be one or two consecutive terms - fall, spring, or summer – with department permission.
ILLM-503
3 Credits
This course introduces strategies used to create NURBS and polygonal models of organic subjects in a three-dimensional environment. Assignments stress accurate portrayal of proportions, form, and texture. Instruction will also focus on creating lighting and shader networks that emphasize form and are consistent with surface characteristics.
ILLM-498
1 - 6 Credits
The medical illustration internship will provide students with the option to work with practicing professionals in a business or educational environment. Students may apply for internships to businesses and educational institutions based on the availability of positions and company needs. Students must obtain permission of an instructor and complete the Internship Permission Form to enroll.

ILLM-606
3 Credits
This course explores animating biomedical subjects and processes. Students will be asked to research contemporary theory defining their subjects' anatomy and create animations consistent with their findings. Frame by frame animation, blend shapes, non-linear deformers, and rigging systems will be introduced to permit students to choose the most effective method for creating motion and transformation.
ILLM-602
3 Credits
Through independent research and acquired understanding of human gross anatomy, students create illustrations designed to support medical or graduate level instruction of Human Gross Anatomy. Course requires students to cognitively illustrate their subjects, rather than creating literal interpretations of their observations. Work is intended for full color print media.
ILLM-603
3 Credits
This course introduces strategies to create polygonal models of biomedical subjects. Students will use contemporary research to accurately define structure and suggest function. Instruction will also focus on lighting and "shader" systems that emphasize form and are consistent with tissue characteristics.
