If you came to this site hoping to find out how the pharmaceutical industry is evil and fluoride in the water is making you grow extra toes, you are unfortunately out of luck. However if you stumbled on this site because you’re in the midst of studying and things just haven’t stuck yet, hopefully you’ll find something here to help.

I now have pocket cards and posters available for purchase these are for sale at my Etsy shop (SketchyMedicine) and can be bought separately or as a set if you are indecisive.

How I make the images

The majority of my images are created using Adobe Ideas on my iPad. I use one of those funny iPad styluses, which is akin to drawing with a crayon. I also use Adobe Illustrator from time to time if I’m feeling fancy (Illustrator is what I use for my professional illustrations).


If you want to use my images, please do but please cite the source (as you should be doing for all images you use in presentations and papers). You can email me at ali@sketchymedicine.com if you have any specific questions!

Ali is a plastic surgery resident who created Sketchy Medicine when she was starting medical school clerkship. She is always looking for new topics to draw, but apologizes for the overwhelming amount of anatomy-themed doodles. Ali does not have free time, but imagines that if she did, she would enjoy activities such as running and design.

Mike is also a resident and was the one who thought of the name “Sketchy Medicine.” He has a passion for medical education as is demonstrated in his more thoroughly researched doodles. Mike also likes statistics and kittens.
