It was an unforgettable Celebration of a Century of Medical Illustration
Art as Applied to Medicine, the first Department of its kind in the world, was endowed by Henry Walters in 1911 with Max Brödel as its first Director. This became the defining moment when the profession of Medical Illustration was established. Brödel arrived at Hopkins 17 years earlier in 1894 and from the beginning he realized that what he had embarked upon was something very new and different. In July of 2011 we presented a full day and evening of activities. We invite you to view the celebration of fellow medical illustrators, colleagues, friends and Hopkins alumns in a fun and informative reunion. Here at Hopkins we are on the dawn of exciting scientific, medical, and communication technologies but still teaching the “art” of our profession. Our one-day celebration not only takes a look at the historical past but address the advances along the way and try to project the future of the profession and the skills all of the graduate programs we will be teaching in the next 100 years.
A catalog of A Century of Medical Illustration is now available as a print-on-demand book. This 358 page, hardbound, full-color catalog features the artwork of the Johns Hopkins Centennial Exhibition, celebrating 100 years of teaching excellence in medical illustration.

We want to invite you and encourage you to view the celebration of fellow medical illustrators, colleagues, friends and Hopkins alumns in a fun and informative reunion.
