Come, Join the VT Board!
The Vesalius Trust needs to fill a few seats that current trustees will be vacating this coming February 2022. Our objective is to enlist people who are willing to donate a bit of their time and talents to further our profession by helping us fulfill our mission, which is to provide leadership for the advancement of education and research in visual communication for the health sciences.
Potential candidates do not have to be AMI members, but it helps if they are interested in our cause and know a little bit about our field of work. We are looking for individuals who might have skills in the areas of fundraising, social media, financial expertise, design, etc.
BUT having those types of skills is not a requirement. We welcome anyone all levels: from recent grads with great ideas and lots of energy to more “seasoned” types with life experience who can offer sage and strategic, practical and operational advice.
Please include a short bio and/or brief statement as to why your choice(s) would make good candidates.
Thank you for considering being a part of helping future visual communicators realize their potential.
We wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year!
We reflect upon our 2019-2020 activities—and what a challenging time it has been! Yet, through it all, the Vesalius Trust has sought ways to uphold our core values: Accountability, Guarantor of Loyalty, Fiscal Responsibility, and Trust.
We’ve had some changes in leadership, a new interim executive director, new scholarship winners, and new ways of interacting with our supporters and beneficiaries.
You can read here about our Financials, the fun and success of our live events at the 2019 AMI Annual Meeting, our gratitude to the Friends of the Trust, the most recent donation by Dr. Stephen Joffe to the Lloyd Library, and—looking hopefully to the future and the return of in-person events—the 2022 Arts and Anatomy Tour.
Bill Andrews, founding president of the Vesalius Trust, has said, “There has never been a greater need for those who can clearly explain, through visuals, the complexities of high-tech medicine.” Never has this been more true than in 2020. We look forward to your continued interest and support.
We are delighted to announce that the Vesalius Trust Art & Anatomy Tour of France & Switzerland is taking place on October 11-21, 2022. The tour – organized and hosted by Marie Dauenheimer – will include guided visits of outstanding European medical museums and institutions.

Spaces are limited so please sign up by September 1, 2021!
