So You Want to Be a Doctor?
Did you ever want to put your hands inside a corpse?
 
Students in the Honors Advanced Anatomy program at Westlake High School in Westlake Village, California, are among the only high school kids in the country who get hands-on experience dissecting human cadavers.
 
Six students work on each body, using scalpels and other medical instruments to open up the corpses to learn the basics of anatomy.
 
Twenty four kids are accepted into the program each year. Most of them plan to be doctors--but there are always a handful who are too grossed out by the experience to continue.
