    Questions about Gross Anatomy

    Advertisements



    So...this whole med school thingy is becoming more real by the minute. Questions keep flooding my mind. Here are a few. I tried to limit them to one subject. Please answer whichever ones you can.

    1) What was the average cadaver:student this past year?
    2) Is there a 'dress code' for Gross anatomy (Scrubs/Labcoat/tie/etc.)?
    3) If there is a dress code, can we wear our own Scrubs/Labcoat or are we required to buy and wear ones with the University's logo on them (I somehow doubt this)?
    4) Are disposable gloves provided or is it a good idea to carry our own?
    5) What about dissection kits?
    6) Should I bring some instruments with me (tuning fork/sphymomanometer/otoscope/opthalmoscope/tape measure/reflex hammer)?

    I'm just finishing up my second year but I think I can answer some of your questions.

    1) for my class we had two cadavers split between ~70 ppl. Unfortunately it is not common practice for people to donate their bodies in Poland so there is a definite shortage, but it was still fine.
    2) The dress code is that you have to wear a lab coat, but you can purchase whatever coat you want. Otherwise they don't care what you wear under it. I think they don't allow open toed shoes either but I can't remember if that's a rule or not (but trust me that you don't want to be in anatomy lab wearing sandals).
    3) You can wear your own coat
    4) You will need to have your own gloves, and having your own scalpel is also a good idea. You can buy these at different medical supply stores around town no problem.
    5) I don't think many students had these, they are definitely not required.
    6) You wont need any of these things until the end of second year, and even then all you really need is a stethoscope.

    Hope that helps
