LEROY – A group of doctors in central Illinois is opening a cadaver dissection lab for high school students to give young people a head-start on future medical careers.

The lab will be open to select students from advanced courses in subjects like anatomy and biology, The Pantagraph in Bloomington reported Thursday.

“Not every kid is cut out for this,” acknowledged Dr. Tom Pliura, head of the McLean County Medical Society, which is sponsoring the lab. But he said it is valuable experience that no one else in Illinois is offering to high school students and it will give the area a much-needed competitive edge.
