Medical Schools http://ripr.org en Honoring your first patient: a cadaver http://ripr.org/post/honoring-your-first-patient-cadaver <p>Medical students and doctors tell me they'll never forget their first cadaver, the body they came to know intimately in their first year anatomy class. I remember Future Docs <a href="http://wrni.drupal.publicbroadcasting.net/post/participants">Sarah Rapoport and Peter Kaminski</a> telling me they felt a kind of reverence for this person who gave the gift of their body. At Brown University's medical school, a handful of students work together on the same cadaver throughout the whole session. They get to know a bit about the life that cadaver led before they encounter it in the lab.
