I did one when i was training for IBO... It is cool to see all the things you learned about but they smell awful... But they say you get used to the smell

If you are referring to human kadavers, in the US, undergraduates are usually only permitted to witiness dissections from separate rooms, while the graduates usually perform the dissection.

What are cadavers? A dissecting lesson?

Yes, it is for Medical School, etc. It trains students in professional fields to understand the human body better by actually going through the body by dissecting it themselves.

You are dissecting a real human body (a dead one of course :lol: ). Kadavers are the bodies you dissect. actually there are some processes that the body goes through before dissection, these processes change the look and the smell of the body.

is it hard? I mean, isn't it awkward to be cutting up a dead human? I'm going to med school and dissection is the part I'm dreading most. How does the lesson usually proceed?

thanx

really, this may sound callous, but you immerse yourself in the learning process and the fact that the "specimen" had feelings, thoughts, dreams and ideas is set on a back burner. It is not gross, it is quite fascinating to view the human body from the inside. And remember, these folks wanted to give themselves for this very purpose--learning and such.

my two cents

that's what I've heard other people say. They reach a point where the body just becomes material to be learned and they 'forget' that the body was once a living, breathing person.
