Living Autopsy
Event Details

This live event is presented by, pathologist Oonagh King, and involves a ‘living’ dead body, played by an actor. This event will take attendees through the process of a post-mortem examination, showing the real instruments used, explaining where incisions are made, how each organ is examined, and what tests might be carried out. It will also explain the role of pathologists, and what circumstances would lead to a post-mortem being required for someone who has died.

Oonagh completed her medical degree in Queen's University Belfast and did a Master's degree in English Literature and Medicine at King's College London.
