Dissecting dead bodies

Q: In medical school you have to take anatomy class and dissect cadavers (dead bodies) for educational purposes of course. The cadavers are non-Muslim as far as I know but you wear gloves and lab coat while dissecting.

1) Do you have to do ghusal every time you have that class because you dissected the cadaver or is wudhu sufficient to do wudhu to pray namaz?

2) If you have more classes after that and you just wash your hands do you have to read anything while washing them?



1. No.

2. No.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
