Meet Emily: Anatomical Justice’s summer intern that we couldn’t let go of quite so soon.
Anatomical illustration fascinates Emily, which allows her the opportunity to pursue both medicine and art. She is a rising senior in the Biomedical Arts and Visualization (BMAV) program at Rowan University, which offers a working knowledge of anatomy while exploring rendering techniques to best represent the intricacies of the human body. Emily is learning to apply these techniques accumulated from her senior portfolio at Rowan, putting them directly into practice at Anatomical Justice. Interning at our studio has provided her with a heightened understanding of the profession beyond the classroom. Emily has found particular merit in the hands-on experience of reading and taking notes on radiological, operative, and narrative reports.
When asked what advice she has for incoming students considering the field, she noted that conducting research on all avenues a degree in the studio arts can lead to is imperative. “Find the field you love and take classes that will help you get there.” Emily stressed that showing interest to professors, peers, and other professionals who cross your path will help open doors. Following through by providing a portfolio, resume, and other necessary resources when an opportunity arises proves that your interest is genuine.
Like many students across the nation, Emily received word from her university regarding the many precautions it is taking due to Covid-19. She knew that these changes would turn her senior year on its head. However, when one door closes, another opens. Anatomical Justice has been so happy to extend Emily’s internship while she continues her studies remotely! It has delighted us to have Emily on our team for the summer and beyond. It is truly an honor working alongside her during these unprecedented times.
