    I know Kings and Imperial do it.
    The two im really interested in are
    Barts and Newcastle.

    By dissection, i mean cutting up dead people not animals or something.

    Thanks in advance!

    UCL most definitely and I think Durham/Newcastle med schools too. Not sure about any others. Many will do pro-sections with smaller body parts dissected in detail for you to look at.

    Well from what I've read dissection isn't always the best way to learn anatomy. There isn't a consensus, but I have noticed on here (as well as others) seem to be prosecution being a more effective way of learning.

    Prosection is is watching a experienced anatomist dissect a cadaver among a small group of students.

    Also the numbers of the public donating their bodies after their death is declining, so there are some Universities that only offer prosection or even none at all, and rely on imaging software or models.

    Does that mean it's actually increasing? :getmecoat:

    Any source of the Newcastle one?
    I thought only a few med schools do dissection!

    I want to cut people in med school

    I agree, would hate to be an optician. Optometrist, on the other hand...

    Don't feel sorry for me, I think it's great. I feel sorry for the medics.

        (By the way, I'm not a medical student - I only know what I do because my brother studied it and he had to cut up cadavers quite early on... as did my uncle when studying dentistry bizarrely)

        No, an optician is the one that dispensing the glasses. An optometrist is the examiner.
