I went out on my second day at the vet office, the doc was spaying a dog, and it never occured to me that he would reach inside with his hands and pull stuff out, well I watched him proceed to insert his hand, the room went dark and the next thing I know I'm on the damn floor.

You know doctor, I've got this chest pain, can you give me some morphine?

BTW, is it true that in first year at med school, when you use the remains of 3rd year cadaevers, that you tend to find them rather messed about with?

Well our cadaver, who we've kindly named 'Maud', was cut in half over christmas so they could fit her in a decontamination bath (getting a bit mouldy). I wouldn't say they were the remains of the 3rd year though, as most of the anatomy teaching is done in Year 1/Year 2. We've now got a new friend, who we've deemed 'Maud 2'.

Cadavers 'last' quite a while - we dissected ours for a year.

It's because a friend of mine told me how his cadaver's stomach was filled with ears.

I couldn't see that happening at our med school, the demonstrators have, quite rightly, some ethical conscience! Interestingly, under the Anatomy Act you can be arrested if you take anything (specimen) out of the dissection room as well (so those stories of hearts being taken out to give to ppl on valentine's day are probably not true)

Spayed! Not Neutered! Female dog.
Umm, the doc told me to shake it off, and hand him the forceps.
No he told me to go on break, and not too worry as everyone goes out at least once.

Well, I never heard if that story.

Anyway, is it like pretty nasty seeing a cadaver? Nobody get a bit dizzy? Like sick? Do you get to dissect them yourself?

And about the needles. Do you pratice them on yourself?

yes, the anatomy act is rightfully very strict. It's a great 'priviledge' to be able to learn anatomy via dissection - it's becoming rarer these days, and medical schools are literally fighting to keep their DR's open. I think medstudents all too often forget this and can come across as disrespectful.

Sorry, but I was thionking about my biology teacher, who referred to the fact that she had "popped" a dog's testicle out before during surgery.

No, it's not 'nasty' seeing a cadaver. Dissection is a surreal experience and you have to get over the 'it's a person' thing. Having said that, it's absolutely fascinating. I didnt't feel faint at all, though have seen others faint.

As for taking blood - yes, we practise on each other.

When you graduate uni, do you have a job from the NHS waiting for you? Like readily assigned? Or do you have to like apply. How much would you earn?

The first time it can be a bit unusual, if you've seen surgery on work experience or stuff on TV like that public autopsy, it helps. They tend to ease you in gradually and don't show the head and the whole body in one swoop. Eventually, most medics resort to the ultimate defense mechanism...humour.
And yes, some people did feel sick the first time, but only a couple in the year. They are still with us, so no real problems!
We have them dissected for us by anatomy demonstrators this year, but in the third year we can choose to to a special study module on dissection and be let loose on it then.
And it's far to early in my course even to be looking at needles, lol.
