Medical School Dissections in Islamic Countries

Recommended Posts

Are dissections of animals and human beings allowed in Islam for the purpose of education? If not, how do medical school students learn about the human body in countries like Iran? In western schools, students dissect bodies that were donated to science.

A lot of the middle eastern countries don't allow real human body dissection.

Some universities based in the middle east will import real humans that have been covered with a substance to make them appear plastic; these models are used to teach in place of dissections - obviously illegal but the government don't know.

I don't think real human dissections are imperative for studying medicine in this day and age - with the technology there are many a models that can be made replicating the average human anatomy, as well as programs. Yes it may not be as effective as cadavers, but it is effective enough
