In all seriousness - this really surprises me. I'm generally not icked out about things like this, but there are some practicalities. The lack of cleaning stations makes absolutely no sense to do this. Body juices can get on you, regardless of how well gowned you are.

And even dead bodies drip fluids which need to be cleaned up.

These kinds of seminars really need to be done in university and hospital labs.

I may have missed it, but the article doesn't tell what types of organizations or institutions hold these "conventions". The only legitimate ones (medical schools, hospitals, and ...?) would have their own facilities. And who attends? Presumably surgeons who feel the need to hone their skills or learn new ones, apparently outside those traditional settings. And who teaches in this unsanctioned setting?
Many questions....

It's really very bizarre. Makes me wonder if anybody is practicing treatments for Ebola at the Holiday Inn and assembling nuclear bombs at the Radisson . . .

I have attended seminars similar to this in Florida to learn new operating techniques/use of new surgical instruments or implants but the cadaver (hands on) section was always held at a medical facility, college campus or at/in the companies lab facilities. (The vast majority of companies have a mobile semi trailer that they have outfitted with appropriate equipment for cadaver labs that can be placed in the parking lot of the resort).

We would meet to have the didactic/educational instruction at the resort but move to the labs on opposite days or later in the week.

If I attended this kind of program I would immediately report it to the state medical board and health department. This has to be a fly by night company/distributor who has no clue.

Well, this begs many questions. How does a fly-by-night company get its hands on cadavers? Just what kind of body market is there for corpses? Could a High School science club get their hands on one? Does Disney's reservation form include a question regarding number of bodies needed for seminars?

The author of the article checked with the San Francisco Health Department, which swore it was an internet rumor until presented with the evidence. Apparently this is a fairly unregulated practice.

You can't scatter ashes, which are perfectly safe, anywhere you want, but you can stroll into any hotel ballroom and cut open a corpse.

Jim jokes that he wants his mortal remains left at Disney. Guess I'll have to tell him to donate his body to science!

Not to mention the very attractive impressionistic drip patterns the show up in the ballroom carpet after each seminar . . .

Hey, maybe the dog is barking to alert people it smells cadavers!!
