The Need for Anatomical Gifts in Medical Education and Research

The study of human anatomy constitutes an indispensable component of medical education and research. Continual anatomical gifts are essential to the teaching of medical and dental students, postgraduate physicians, nurses, physical therapists, and students in related disciplines.  Any competent person over 18 years of age may donate his or her body for medical education and research.

The Deeded Body Program is sincerely committed to establishing a dignified, compassionate, and comforting relationship with each of its donors and their families.
