You’re a Doctor, Not a Cartoonist

As patients, we get it. You went to medical school, served a residency, became a doctor and have helped thou­sands of patients. But drawing may not be one of your note­worthy achieve­­ments. Stick to your strengths. Your doodles are fine for conveying ideas to colleagues. However, we must draw the line for patients.

Sketches may have been required during medical school. When lives are at stake, cartoons do not quite pass the standard of professionalism. For patients to make informed decisions about treatment, they need a clear presentation. Choose anatomically-correct products that accurately convey the intended purpose.

Some doctors learn to draw well and are able thereby able to improve patient communication. I applaud those who have the time and requisite skill.

ClinicalPosters supplies appropriate­ visual aids to medical profes­sionals. This includes anatomy posters, anatomical models, brochures and flip charts. If you commonly perform a specific procedure, consider having custom artwork prepared. Personalize patient exam-room experiences by shopping for products within your medical category today.
