The UK’s first live immersive post-mortem experience is coming to Worcester next month.
On Wednesday, November 17, students and members of the public alike are invited to Worcester Racecourse to step inside the shoes a pathologist to discover how a post-mortem is carried out.
The show is led by award-winning human anatomist Samuel Piri and his team and involves the use of VIVIT, the “worlds’ only semi-synthetic human cadaver”, as they seek to discover the body’s cause of death. 
Guests will even have the chance to get involved and dissect the body themselves, with a real head specimen, thoracic block and GI tract. 
The event’s website says: “The Post Mortem Live invites you to step into the shoes of a pathologist as we take you inside the process of the post mortem. 
“Working with nationally acclaimed human anatomist Samuel Piri and his wider clinical team, you will learn and develop an understanding of complex undergraduate human anatomy and its associated pathologies. 
“Samuel developed VIVIT -the world’s only semi-synthetic human cadaver to train students' anatomy in a contextualised format. 
“We operate the only license in the UK permitting the use of real tissues in the teaching and training of human anatomy.”
It continues: “The Post Mortem Live tours UK universities to expose students to real specimens, to bolster human anatomy in context, and develop practical skills to contribute to developing scientists and healthcare professionals confident in their anatomy, physiology, and pathology. 
“To date, we have worked with over 30,000 students and counting.”
The show has previously featured on the BBC, Discovery Channel and Medicplayer.
There are two events, one beginning at 10am and another at 4pm, both lasting four and a half hours.
Tickets range from £55 to £73, and you must be 16 or over to attend.
