Anatomical Gift: Donating a Body to Science

from Anatomical Gift Whole Body Donation Guide by Regina Lee

Anatomical Need

The need is great for anatomical gifts in the majority of medical programs throughout the United States. The lack of anatomical subjects in many schools forces anatomy departments to request shared bodies from other schools or institutions. In many situations, five or more students have to share one donated body, which limits hands-on education.
