Blow Your Top Med students get teacher's body at first autopsy

It was their first ever autopsy, but students at one of Sweden's top medical schools were faced with a familiar sight in the classroom: the body on the table belonged to their late teacher.

This sounds like a story Alfred Hitchcock would have directed.

That's so unfair! We never got a chance to cut up any of our teachers when I went to school!

It mildly surprises me that this doesn't happen more often. My school has one of the biggest anatomical donation programs in the region, and at the start of Gross Anatomy they warn you that if you had a loved one die between March and November of that year, there's a chance you'll see them in the lab.
