Careers in dissection . . .
« on: April 09, 2014, 06:04:51 PM »
Does anybody know the name for the career in human body dissection? It's not forensic or medical related. It's more for use with medical drawings, animations, videos, etc.

I'm asking because DD#1's dissection professor asked her if she ever thought of a career in ______ but she can't remember the name of the field. She said it's 3 words beginning with Bio something (maybe) . . . she won't see her professor again until next week.

I curious to find out more information about this career path. I've done some googling and can't really find anything related to this type of career.


Any help?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, but no. She'll be doing the dissection part not the actual illustrations.

My DH was an autopsy assistant at a hospital.  That's the official title, but they are known informally as 'dieners'.  It's German for 'servant', probably a holdover from old university days.

Beat for her to ask her professor to please repeat what he said, and DD write it down this time.

You're absolutely right, veronaz, and I know she will.

I was just trying to look it up due to my own curiosity and hoped that maybe someone out there had the answer.

Thanks, anyway, everyone! ;D

bio-medical research?

Or look up variations on pathology.
