College-Study human Body?

Im wanting to go to college to study the human body.But im needing to know what all options I have. I do not want to be a Corner because i do not like touching dead people.I do not want to be a nurse..I just find the human body amazing on how we can remember to breathe everyday but cannot remember what we said maybe 20 minutes ago.Just so many things.So what all options like careers could I go into.. NOTE:I do not want to be a nurse.

    Human anatomy (gr. ἀνατομία, "dissection", from ἀνά, "up", and τέμνειν, "cut") is primarily the scientific study of the morphology of the human body.[1] Anatomy is subdivided into gross anatomy and microscopic anatomy.[1] Gross anatomy (also called topographical anatomy, regional anatomy, or anthropotomy) is the study of anatomical structures that can be seen by the naked eye.[1] Microscopic anatomy is the study of minute anatomical structures assisted with microscopes, which includes histology (the study of the organization of tissues),[1] and cytology (the study of cells). Anatomy, human physiology (the study of function), and biochemistry (the study of the chemistry of living structures) are complementary basic medical sciences that are generally together (or in tandem) to students studying medical sciences.
    In some of its facets human anatomy is closely related to embryology, comparative anatomy and comparative embryology,[1] through common roots in evolution; for example, much of the human body maintains the ancient segmental pattern that is present in all vertebrates with basic units being repeated, which is particularly obvious in the vertebral column and in the ribcage, and can be traced from very early embryos.
    The human body consists of biological systems, that consist of organs, that consist of tissues, that consist of cells and connective tissue.
    The history of anatomy has been characterized, over a long period of time, by a continually developing understanding of the functions of organs and structures in the body. Methods have also advanced dramatically, advancing from examination of animals through dissection of fresh and preserved cadavers (dead human bodies) to technologically complex techniques developed in the 20th century.,,,…….

    Generally, physicians, dentists, physiotherapists, nurses, paramedics, radiographers, and students of certain biological sciences, learn gross anatomy and microscopic anatomy from anatomical models, skeletons, textbooks, diagrams, photographs, lectures, and tutorials. The study of microscopic anatomy (or histology) can be aided by practical experience examining histological preparations (or slides) under a microscope; and in addition, medical and dental students generally also learn anatomy with practical experience of dissection and inspection of cadavers (dead human bodies). A thorough working knowledge of anatomy is required for all medical doctors, especially surgeons, and doctors working in some diagnostic specialities, such as histopathology and radiology.
    Human anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry are basic medical sciences, which are generally taught to medical students in their first year at medical school. Human anatomy can be taught regionally or systemically;[1] that is, respectively, studying anatomy by bodily regions such as the head and chest, or studying by specific systems, such as the nervous or respiratory systems. The major anatomy textbook, Gray’s Anatomy, has recently been reorganized from a systems format to a regional format, in line with modern teaching.

    You’ll have to study biology, human anatomy, or you could focus in on neurology, etc. When you say studying the human body do you mean just the physiological aspects or maybe the mental faculties? You need to know specifics because after your general courses in college you’ll need a major field and if you want to study human bodies in many cases you’ll have to still dissect and maybe even run through clinical settings. You may not want to pursue that career but still have to have knowledge of it. Good luck.
