    or 'position one or position two'.
    Surely you're just setting yourself up for all sorts of innuendos with that one?

    Hopefully a six year old doesn't know innuendos...

    I use 'lens one or lens two' on most people, and 'position one or position two' on kids that don't already wear glasses (or anyone below about six) because asking young relatives and friends' relatives has shown me that, below about the age of ten, kids don't understand lenses unless they wear glasses themselves, and even then those below six still didn't. Kids also tend to be more nervous during medical-related tests, so need more explanation.

    So whilst I would tell an older kid or an adult, "I'm going to be putting two lenses in front of your eye one after the other, and would like you to tell me if lens one or lens two makes the two circles rounder and clearer," I would phrase it to a child as, "I'm going to be putting something in front of your eye and moving it around, and that will change how you see things for a short while; you just need to let me know if you see the circles better when it's in position one or position two."

    Hull York Medical School definitely, my flatmate told us in graphic detail about how he was cutting up someone's ribcage and lungs while we were trying to eat dinner...
    Nice. I think at HYMS it's an SSC, so it isn't compulsory - it just can be done if the student wants to.

    We dissect live people.

    Messy but of far more clinical relevance.

    The pre-clinical years at Durham and Newcastle are completely separate. Newcastle make a big deal about using prosection and how dissection is absolutely terrible and will turn you into a raving psychopath blah blah.

    I don't get how medics can take cutting up PEOPLE so casually, does no-one ever throw up at the sight of it?
    Could you guys opt out of it if you wanted to?

    I bet people do throw up. As for 'people', from the handful of times I've seen cadavers they look absolutely nothing like a 'person'.

    I doubt you can opt out, no, as you would be missing out on a huge chunk of the course. Newcastle's lectures, for example (they don't use dissection, but just for arguments sake) are not mandatory, but seminars and anatomy sessions are.

    Throw up? No.
