Medical Illustration Background

 
 

Medical Illustration Department is one of the oldest departments in the college of health sciences at Makerere University.

Around 1950 a technician in the Anatomy department started photographing specimens as a personal interest for documentation.  The Makerere Medical School soon realised the value of these visuals as teaching aids and encouraged the technician to go on. A qualified Illustrator/ Curator was recruited from Britain in the mid 50s. He built up the unit which developed further into the Department of Medical Illustration by 1958.  The Medical Illustration Department was to serve as a central pool to provide instructional visual aids, equipment and materials to all departments in the faculty of Medicine. The faculties of Veterinary Medicine and Science were later brought on board as they also have a specific demand of visual aids.
