Five unusual jobs in healthcare



These unusual careers blend different disciplines to improve patient care.

1)    Art Therapist: Art Therapy stems from the worlds of psychotherapy and art. In this interdisciplinary therapeutic approach, patients create art and reflect on that process to address difficulties such as illness or trauma. 

2)    Medical Illustrator: Artists with extensive training in science and medicine, Medical Illustrators use traditional and digital techniques to visually illustrate medical and biological knowledge.
