Students take 12 classes at a time, each student taking the same class. Since worsham is a small school, this strict schedule is possible. Extra help can come from the teachers personally, but I find studying with my peers an excellent resource, if not the best. Only a hand full of the professors are very helpful, specifically, the ones who have been there for 20 plus years or are seasoned funeral directors. Worsham provides excellent hands on training at the Cook County Medical Examiners Office in Chicago.
