Anatomical Gift Program

Case Western Reserve University works with families in the Cleveland, Ohio and surrounding areas (Cuyahoga County, Lorain County, Ashtabula County, Summit County, Lake County) who wish to help in the field of science and provide medical students with a critical learning experience. For over 40 years, the Department of Anatomy in the School of Medicine has been a trusted source for those looking to donate a body.

Donating your body after death to the School of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University is a generous and selfless act. Knowledge of the human body through dissections is an indispensable part of education for future physicians, professors, and other healthcare professionals. The insight gained from these experiences helps to benefit future generations and change the world as we know it.

To read more about how your donation has affected our students, please read some of the Letters of Appreciation. Thank you hardly seems adequate.
