The Vesalius Trust supports education– not only of students enrolled in medical illustration programs, but also of professionals in the field of visual communication in health sciences. The constant changes in communication technology and the rapid expansion of knowledge in the health sciences require professional visual communicators to continually improve their educational experiences. The Trust believes educational support should exist independent of the formal, academic setting.
Support is provided by underwriting workshops, seminars and lectures in visual communications. The primary venue for these educational activities are the annual meetings of the Association of Medical Illustrators.
