Knowledge of anatomy is essential for physicians, dentists and other health related professionals. The demand for bodies for teaching this essential information is great. Therefore, medical schools across the country are having to depend on the generosity of citizens to make their bodies available for this necessary education.

The UB Anatomical Gift Program is a well established program to assist current medical students in their studies. The program also offers kindness and thanks to the donors as well as the donor's families. Learn all about this generous program, how it is unique compared to other schools and take some of the stigma away from end of life planning.
