Body Donation Program
Stony Brook University’s Department of Anatomical Science has sponsored a Body Donation program for over thirty-five years. Many clinicians and researchers firmly believe that dissection remains the key to mastering human anatomy, and Stony Brook University is fortunate to manage a successful body donation program that supports this teaching and training mission. With body donation, an individual decides to give to the medical profession the use of his or her body for dissection and research after death. Such a gift is an extraordinary act of generosity that supports the teaching and training of our future medical professionals. By donating one’s body to our program an individual contributes directly to the education of some of the most outstanding young clinicians.
