Dept of Anatomy Body Donation

Body Donation

Body donation form

Any donation from us gives us immense sense of happiness when we are alive we try giving as much as possible for the needy.

Once we reach the end of “journey of life” we become from “Somebody” to some “body”. And this body is of no use to us. After our death the mortal remains generally will be burnt or buried which perishes in to ash or mud. Instead of this we can donate our body for educational purpose.

Anatomy is a department, where medical students who are going to be future doctors are going to learn the geography of the human body. Even after so much of technological advancement we are still not able to create human body like how nature has given us.

In this regard we can donate our body for education purpose for the future doctors.
