In my anatomy class we are going to be working with cadavers. I am both nervous and very excited about this. I have never seen a dead body up close; I really don't know how I will react. I don't have any problem with seeing surgery or blood or anything -- in fact, I thought that Katie's C-Section was one of the most amazing things I had ever seen. The anatomy professor said that she picked up a new cadaver last week and that her name is Kitty. Her advanced biology class will actually do the dissection with the bone saw and all, but we get to inspect and memorize the parts of her body. Our lab midterm actually consists of us coming to the cadaver lab and seeing the cadaver with little flags on the body, and us having to name the different flagged parts.
Has anyone else taken anatomy? How did you do with the cadavers?
