The Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine will host its annual Cadaver Memorial Service on Wednesday (Dec. 3) at 4:15 p.m. at the Reynolds Medical Building on the west campus of Texas A&M University.

Honoring people who donated their bodies to the college for medical school education, the ceremony hosted by first-year medical students includes a candle lighting.

Students spend three days a week during their first four months of medical school in the gross anatomy lab to learn about the structure of the human body in a hands-on environment.

The course relies heavily on laboratory dissection, the most effective method to obtain a three-dimensional understanding of the human body.

The speaker is Dr. Mark Sicilio, assistant professor of pediatrics with the HSC-College of Medicine and pediatrician at the Scott & White College Station Clinic. Asked by the class of medical students to speak, his mother actually was one of the cadavers used this year.
