Anatomy Face Painting at the Dental School


Earlier on in the year our medical artist, Annie Campbell, joined her colleagues at the University of Dundee School of Dentistry to participate in an Anatomy Face Painting session. There Annie joined the Dental School’s medical artist, Emily McDougall, and their lecturers, Dr Andrew Mason and Dr. John Radford.

Check out the video created by our school’s marketing team:

Seems like such a fun experience. Let’s hope we do something similar at the Medical School!

Thanks for watching.

The TILT team participate in the Dundee Design Festival


It has been an exciting month and we’re pleased to say that a few members of our TILT team were participants in the Dundee Design Festival.

The group consisted of a great team that worked together to help a 3rd year medical student produce fantastic educational video resources about the anatomy and pathologies of the larynx. They then showcased their process as part a talk “Under the Digital Skin

Gray’s Anatomy is one of the most influential illustrated books in the world. For over 150 years and 41 editions it has been the go-to guide for those wanting to glimpse inside the human body. But with the huge strides in digital animation and 3D modeling software, how can designers better communicate what lies under the skin? Hear how a team of surgeons, clinicians, educators and medical artists are working together to produce jaw-dropping images to reveal the human anatomy pixel by pixel.

Doctor as a Digital Teacher

This work was created as part of an innovative Student Selected Component (SSC) available in third year: ‘Doctor as Digital Teacher’–created by Natalie Lafferty. This 4-week module sees learners attend face-to-face teaching sessions and engage in online learning activities, before ultimately developing a resource that can be used in the undergraduate medical curriculum.

We think it’s a great module as it trains our future doctors to become effective educators in an increasingly digital world. Here’s what Zoe had to say about it:

“I chose ‘Doctor as Digital Teacher’ mainly because once you enter medical school your options for creativity and art really are very limited,” said Zoe.

“I really wanted to break the norm and create something a bit different that students can use in their studies. I loved the idea of getting involved in design and colour and editing, and applying this to the subjects I was learning.”

Now take a look at the final products. We think it’s pretty great!
