With your art background, why not also look into medical illustration?

Many medical schools have medical illustrators on staff (and, often, a
training or certification course for them as well), as do medical
publishers and journals.

I would think that with some knowledge of technical writing as well,
you could easily be a "double threat" on the job market.

For those who are unaware, a good medical illustration can be far
clearer than any photograph as a means of conveying information. Thus,
a good medical illustrator rarely lacks for work.
