Body Donations

Anatomy departments of Medical schools are legally empowered to receive bodies. Body donations are vital for the teaching of anatomy to medical, dental, allied and science students. Bequests also are used to train professionals and for research to further the medical field.

If you are interested in becoming a body donor, please visit the website of the nearest Medical School to you.
