Paul Kim, MS, CMI

Hi, my name is Paul Kim. I am a board-certified medical illustrator and animator based in New Jersey.

I create visuals that help people understand science and medicine. My work is used to teach medical students anatomy, show HCPs how a drug works at the microscopic level, provide patients with information about their condition or upcoming procedure, help surgeons stay up to date with the latest surgical techniques, and much more. 

With each project I take on, I strive to create visuals that clearly convey the intended message while awing the audience - striking the fine balance between education and beauty, science and art.
