During this session you’ll work with real surgeons, doctors pathologists and anatomists to dissect and examine real specimens as 'VIVIT –the world’s only semi-synthetic human cadaver' is dissected for you. As you work though the post mortem using examination, evidence and an index of suspicion you’ll work to build a picture of what happened to our subject in the final moments of his life.
