Welcome to the Association of Medical Illustrators


Thank you for visiting the AMI’s website! It is my pleasure to represent the diverse and uniquely talented members of our professional organization. Medical illustrators and animators are highly trained content creators and communicators. We transform complex biomedical information into visuals that educate and illuminate the science of life.

This is an exciting time to be working in this field. From its historic origins in illustration, our profession has evolved with today’s technologies in molecular visualization, animation, digital publishing, interactive media, mobile/web communications, imaging, health gaming, patient and surgical simulation, as well as virtual reality. Our professional members meet exacting scientific standards while solving demanding creative challenges. Student members are welcomed and supported to succeed in our profession.

The AMI supports the career development of its members and the sustainability of our creative industry. We provide continuing education on biomedical topics, business practices, and creative techniques. Through our advocacy efforts and alliances, we promote strong artist’s rights. We encourage professional credentialing through Board Certification (BCMI).

The AMI annual meeting is the premier educational conference on visualizing medicine and science. The 2014 conference at the Mayo Clinic was a tremendous event with a diverse array of speakers, exhibitors, demos, and workshops. Our next conference will be held at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic on July 22-25, 2015 and we’d love to see you there.

I welcome your input on how the AMI can serve you better.

Best regards,


Cory Sandone, CMI
President, Association of Medical Illustrators
