If you have been using stock photos for some time you know that your typical healthcare stock photos are often generic and lacking authenticity. It’s often hard to find real life images with real people that can illustrate your message. Luckily we have some really great free medical stock photos in our vaults that you can use to get your message clear across without seeming impersonal or even ridiculous.

First of all, these type of medical images must convey a certain trust and professionalism, although humorous images do have their place in some cases. Whether you are using medical photography for your hospital website, dentist, optical or medical publishing or even a simple facebook page, you have to choose wisely.

Medical illustrations are also a very good choice as they can illustrate a message that is hard or almost impossible to photograph with real people. Graphics of bacteria, illnesses and abstract medical backgrounds are often prove useful as well.

In this post I have handpicked 25 photos and illustration that you can use for your medical & healthcare related projects. You can use them as they are or modify them to your needs, no attribution needed. But be sure to check out the license on the download page before you use them.
