Prof. John Daugherty
We are looking for candidates who are strong in science and have excellent visualization skills. This would be evidenced by an outstanding GPA, high science grades, GRE scores >300 (combined), and an outstanding art portfolio. We favor candidates who demonstrate intellectual curiosity, discipline, consistency of effort, commitment, enthusiasm and passion. Our program emphasizes working together as a community; so we value maturity, consideration, respect, reliability, support and cooperation.
Students interested in Biomedical Visualization should prepare themselves by concentrating on science and art in college. Science courses should include general biology or zoology, vertebrate anatomy, developmental biology, physiology, chemistry, and cell biology. These courses must be of the caliber required for science majors. In the arts, courses should include drawing, life drawing, painting, color theory, graphic design, illustration, and computer graphics.
