Cadavers?!

In medical school, do you really have to cut up cadavers? Is this for all areas of becoming a medical dr? Or just certain areas?


I'd love to become a dr but it don't think I could cut up dead people. Organs and stuff don't gross me out, dead people freak me out though

You will work on cadavers in medical school. My sister is a physician and used to take me to the lab on weekends while she studied for practicals. It was actually really cool.

Yep! I find medical stuff so cool that cadavers wouldn't bother me at all!

I have a friend who wanted to overcome her fear of dead ppl. She's now a licensed mortician! Lol! Lol!

If you want to be a doctor you need to be able to deal with dead people without freaking out. No matter what type of doctor you become, patients die. It's not hard to get over this fear. A good psychologist can help you.

Eh. You would be surprised what you could do after getting over the initial shock.
