The Body Donation Program

The Body Donation Program in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of British Columbia (UBC) has been in service since 1950.

Over the years many individuals have donated their bodies for the purpose of anatomical study and medical research making a very special and valuable contribution to the education of our health care professionals and the communities they serve. The growth of the UBC Faculty of Medicine has created an increased need for donated anatomical material required for educational and research purposes.

More information can be found on the UBC Body Donation Program Website.

A note of caution – make sure you have alternate pre-arrangements. Not all human remains will be accepted. Before you consider this option it is also important to discuss it with your family, executor and physician.
