I think this has been the highlight of the semester for me... hahahaA couple of my classmates and I were finishing our second round of dissections, which - if you haven't realized by now - is my favorite part of A&P! We had moved on from sheep brains to cow eyes. I thought I would upchuck with the eye but surprisingly it was loads of fun!At the end of the dissection, as we cleaned our trays and instruments, we opined over how animal dissections were... well, meh. Educational, for sure, but didn't satisfy our curiosity. One student excitedly stated she wanted to move on to humans. I agreed. Personally I had considered death investigation and forensics in the past; a dissection of a human cadaver in nursing school was a great step if I still had any interest. Our professor then told us that next semester we'll have a chance to perform human dissections at a medical school in Harlem! We couldn't believe it, since we've always been told that these types of dissections aren't common in nursing school. If you're excited about dissections on human cadavers - or have had experience with them - let me know.
