A Medical Student’s Anatomic Gift: There is More Involved than Dissection
From a medical student to the student’s group human cadaver:
“You are an exponential gift, from one man to eight future doctors to hundreds of patients to the multitudes that make up their family and friends ... You gave us access to the wonder that is human life and challenged us to discover all the intricate parts working together to make one man.”
To read the whole story of the Boston University School of Medicine’s anatomical gift program and its manager and anatomy lab director, Robert Bouchie, go to this link
. There you will find a find a fine video about the program but importantly read about the ethics and consideration given to the donated bodies but also to the deceased person’s family. Very inspiring. Do you want to donate your body to a medical school like Boston U.? ..Maurice.
