Frank H. Netter, MD Memorial Scholarship in Medical Art
Ikumi is the recipient of Frank H. Netter, MD Memorial Scholarship in Medical Art from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Frank. H. Netter, M.D. is known world-wide as a medical illustrator who could distill complex medical subject matter into clear, effective teaching images. Dr. Netter was not only a skilled draftsman, but knowledgeable in anatomy, physiology, and pathology through his medical training. Family and friends established this scholarship to recognize a student in Art as Applied to Medicine who displays a similar balance of medical and scientific knowledge with the artistic skills that he exhibited throughout his career. Winners of this award have excelled in their academic courses; displayed exceptional art expression; and most importantly utilized both resources to create well designed and effective didactic illustrations.
Ikumi had the honor to meet Ms. Francine Netter, Dr. Netter’s daughter for dinner!
