Visible Proofs: Forensic Views of The Body:
Visible Proofs: Forensic Views of The Body is a fascinating exhibition about the history of forensic medicine. As the exhibition description notes - over the centuries, physicians, surgeons, and other professionals have struggled to develop scientific methods that translate views of bodies and body parts into "visible proofs" that can persuade judges, juries, and the public.
In the galleries you can explore significant cases, technologies, and people that have had an impact on the history of forensic medicine.
Visible Proofs: Forensic Views of the Body was located on the first floor of the National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. The exhibition was originally open to the public from February 16, 2006 through February 16, 2008.
Make sure you visit the offical website. Here you will find excellent online activities designed to help you learn more about various forensic developments, techniques, and careers!
One such activity presents two medical examiners' perspectives on their work, first-hand experience in medico-legal autopsies, and something called Virtopsy. Here you can explore the world of a medical examiner and consider a forensic pathology career for yourself!
