Anatomy, Physiology and Human Biology

Body Donation Program

The community of Western Australia plays a vital role in the work of the School of Human Sciences.

It is through these strong links that we are able to continue our research, including the Body Donation Program.

Body donation program
The School is licensed to practise anatomy and to accept body donations from members of the Western Australian community. These bodies are used for anatomical teaching, medical and scientific research and specialist training.
Donors
The School is licensed to accept whole body donations. The bodies are used for anatomical teaching, medical and scientific research and specialist training at many teaching and research institutions.
Memorials
The School holds a memorial service in Winthrop Hall every three years to honour the donors to its Body Donation Program. A dedication of thanksgiving expressed in the presence of relatives, special guests and students is the most appropriate way to acknowledge those who have bequeathed their mortal remains to the University.
