You know that saying about a picture being worth a thousand words? Well, turns out those words can be pretty biased – who knew, right? The representation of diversity in medical illustrations is a critically important topic with the potential to revolutionize the healthcare system, particularly by empowering Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).
Being a teacher’s son provides you with a masterclass in cheating. Everyone knew about my mum’s golden rule: “I don’t mind students trying to cheat. They just need to accept the consequences if I manage to bust them.” And that she did a lot. At times it almost seemed like it had become a guilty pleasure of hers. Decades of practice had made her a detective someone like Columbo would have looked up to. At dinner she used to tell us about her latest “coup”. Euphoria in her eyes. Victory in her voice. “Passing on a piece of paper… I mean please! Did he think I was born in the Stone Age?” Sometimes I wondered if they even had a chance. Seeing other people get burnt on a daily basis, naturally I didn’t even consider playing with fire. I was an eager-to-please student learning everything by heart. …until Medical School.

And I can empathize; I've had my fair share of moments grappling with online sign-up sheets, pondering over whether to choose 'medical,' 'art,' or 'other' for what feels like an awkwardly long minute.The truth is, you can't separate the medical from the illustrator in medical illustrator; they are intricately intertwined and equally vital
Imagine trying to clear the snow from your driveway – while you're in the middle of an avalanche.When a former classmate of mine recently took on a new position as “Senior Physician” in a geriatric hospital, this was essentially what he experienced. At least on an emotional level.Maybe he should have been skeptical about how easy it had been to get the job. Maybe. But the clinic is located right where he lives. And Berlin’s northern outskirts aren’t exactly the middle of nowhere.Still, “Who doesn’t have a stressful job?” you might think. And of course there are plenty of people who’ve mastered the art of complaining.But in his case the stats spoke for themselves...
At times ChatGPT seems like an all-knowing oracle. A place of infinite wisdom that patients could always turn to. Never tired. Never off-duty. And there’s literally no topic it hasn’t heard of. If asked, it can deliver studies for any given phenomenon – even the non-existing ones. That’s where the AI promise gets spooky. Particularly in medicine...
