Anatomical Donation Program

Our Faculty receives nearly 500 donated bodies a year, to advance the education of health professionals and to further scientific research.  TAU recognizes the value and importance of anatomical donations and is committed to ensuring that they are treated with great care and respect.


If you or a loved one wishes to donate your body to science, please know that your gift will be honored and valued. Your donation will play a critical role in helping students master the complex anatomy of the human body and will provide scientists with essential tools that benefit communities now and in the future. Donations are integral to a wide range of educational, research, and clinical pursuits, including instruction and research. Some anatomical materials are used for surgical procedural training, allied health education, forensic research and training, mortuary science education, and the development and testing of new medical devices.
