What schools are saying:
“…The experience was great. It was great to be able to watch a procedure such as a autopsy and then have commentary from the doctor that actually performed the procedure….It was also great how the doctor involved us by asking us questions and then also by answering all of the questions we had…. – Nina P

“I also thought it was cool when he talked about the pacemaker and the steps that they had to take to make sure that they wouldn’t be shocked. There is definitely a lot of small things they have to think about when performing something so serious!” -Jamie B.

“Our class was small at the time, so there was a great opportunity to talk with the medical examiner and ask personalized questions….[I]t was the first time I was exposed to a situation like the one we saw on screen, and it was a learning experience in and of itself.” -Jiaqi C.
