Autopsy Rotation: Maggots, Decay, & Flies, Oh MY!

It’s kind of like that>
but worse…
(not my white legs, the deer)

I’m in my last rotation of my program, the autopsy rotation!  I’ve been very excited about this one and now that I’m doing it, I am most definitely not let down.  It is completely fascinating and there is so much to learn, knowledge-wise and skill-wise (actually performing the autopsies).  I’m slow at it right now, but I’ve just begun, and after a couple weeks, I’m sure I’ll be cutting through them like a pro. Just as fascinating as performing the autopsies are the millions of things I’m learning about forensics.  The only downfall is I’m doing this last rotation during the spring and summer weeks, which are getting warmer and warmer… use your imagination.  When I finish this rotation, I’ll have tons of interesting and fun things to write about, so keep stopping by!
