The First Patient


A dramatic expedition into an unknown world, The First Patient challenges audiences to embrace their curiosity and courage as they follow first-year medical students through gross anatomy – the dissection of the human body. The Mayo Clinic School of Medicine granted unprecedented access to explore a world long considered taboo. The documentary proves both entertaining and emotional as the camera follows a diverse group of students, faculty, and body donors on this life-affirming journey inside the human body. The First Patient provides dynamic insights into medical science, teamwork, death and spirituality as students discover what it means to be a doctor.
