The generous act of body donation
Most bodies are used for teaching purposes and will be the subject of student examination and dissection. Studying real human bodies is an invaluable approach to learning anatomy for most health care workers, including doctors, dentists, therapists, pharmacists or exercise scientists. Some bodies are used specifically for surgical and medical research and training. They help to advance surgical techniques and scientific knowledge both nationally and internationally, thereby improving healthcare and alleviating suffering.
HOW DO I REGISTER MY INTENT TO DONATE?
Potential donors are requested to write to the School of Anatomy indicating they wish to donate their body to the Griffith University Body Donation Program. Alternatively, potential donors can apply for a consent form via our online form.
Please note that not everyone is a suitable body donor at the time of their death. Potential donors are encouraged to contact the Anatomy Support Officer if they require additional information.
