The Body Bequeathal Program is administered by the Department of Anatomy, Physiology and Pharmacology in the College of Medicine. This program provides the opportunity to donate your body to medical education and/or science.  

A priceless gift for a better tomorrow

Generous donors, and their families, allow future practitioners to develop a unique understanding of the human body and its form and function.

The College of Medicine is extremely thankful to those who choose to donate their body to medical science. At the University of Saskatchewan annual memorial ceremony, organized by the students who have benefited from the bequeathal program, bequeathal donors are described as being completely selfless. The students fully appreciate these generous donations and understand that without donors, their medical education would be incomplete.
