Dr. Frank H. Netter Award: Call for Entries
The Vesalius Trust for Visual Communications in the Health Sciences is accepting applications for the Dr. Frank H. Netter Award. This award recognizes innovative, creative, and intelligent approaches to visual communication for medical and life sciences.
Winners of the Dr. Frank H. Netter award advance knowledge through the use of visuals that promote in-depth comprehension of abstract and complex biomedical subjects. Some winning entries are collaborative efforts that integrate perspectives of people working in a variety of disciplines while other projects represent the work of a single person with a unique vision. The one thing all winning entries have in common is the ability to advance understanding of health sciences through the effective use of visuals.
Individuals, institutions or companies engaged in the development of visually oriented educational materials that have influenced health science education or practice are invited to apply for this prestigious award. The award is accompanied by a US$1,000 cash prize.
The application deadline is December 2, 2011.
Additional information and application materials are available on the Vesalius Trust website.
