As in previous years, the Augusta University Department of Medical Illustration is seking topic ideas to create patient education brochures.

Students will provide the initial draft of the text, illustration, color study, and design the final piece into a foldable 8.5 inch by 11 inch brochure to help meet patient education needs.

If you would like to team up with a medical illustration student, simply send your topic title and the main objective of your proposed education piece to Julie Moretz by Monday, Jan. 4. Students will choose their topic based on your submission. It is helpful to work with a patient or a patient advisor if your topic is selected, and the Center for Patients and Families can assist.

The medical illustration course runs from January to March. If your topic is selected, you will be expected to meet with the student at each stage of development so the piece meets your patients’ needs. You will have the opportunity to review the content and initial design, finalized sketch, color design and the final piece. At the end of the course, you will receive three prints of the brochure, and the student will provide print-ready files for additional copies to be printed through your department.

Please consider submitting your project title/objective no later than Monday, Jan. 4.
