Project Description

It is important for clinicians and health educators to be knowledgeable about genital conditions and sexually transmitted diseases. Thus, they need training resources for recognizing and understanding the development of such conditions. These illustrations were part of a national curriculum that aims to provide such a resource.

The challenge was to illustrate the essential characteristics of a Bartholin’s cyst and abscess despite there being differences in physical presentations across individuals. These characteristics were vetted by the subject matter expert, resulting in an accurate and clear depiction of a Bartholin’s cyst and abscess, which meets the curriculum’s objective of providing high-quality training resources for the primary audience.
