Body Donation Progra​mme at Stellenbosch University

​The Division of Clinical Anatomy sincerely thanks the donors for the selfless donations of their bodies for medical research and training. 


A very important part of medical education is using cadavers to teach anatomical structures to healthcare professionals. Therefore, the Division of Clinical Anatomy at Stellenbosch University urges people to donate their bodies for use in medical research and anatomical studies to ensure that the students we train today are the best medical professionals of tomorrow.

The use of donated bodies is specifically related to teaching and research for science and health sciences students as well as medical specialists. Donated bodies are treated with the utmost respect and the anonymity of the individual donor will not be compromised in any format or for any reason. Any research that will be conducted on the donated body has to be evaluated and approved by the Stellenbosch University Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) to ensure that the use of the remains is not compromised in any legal or ethical regard.
