Christine Montross, MD, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at the Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University, is, in addition to that long title, an author. She wrote Body of Work: Meditations on Mortality from the Human Anatomy Lab (Penguin Books, 2007) as a way to understand her own experience as a medical student going through anatomy lab.

We sat down to talk about why she's so passionate about medical students learning from actual cadavers. And we also talked about the history of anatomy - one that has some dark twists and turns, in and out of cemeteries and under the hangman's noose.

Author and Brown University medical professor Dr. Christine Montross on the lessons students learn from working with actual cadavers in the anatomy lab.
