The Post-Mortem Live

Producer: Samuel Piri

The UK's First Immersive Live Post-Mortem Experience

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 & 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.

​Each show worth 4 hours of accredited CPD.
