Body Donation Program
The Medical University of South Carolina graciously accepts your interest in our Anatomical Gift Program. The Uniform Anatomical Gift Act adopted on July 30, 1968 enables individuals to donate their bodies to medical research and teaching, and here at MUSC donor bodies are used exclusively for teaching freshman medical students in various health programs such as medicine, dentistry, and allied health, as well as some advanced electives in the junior and senior years. The individual wishing to donate his/her body must be the person completing and signing the Anatomical Gift of Body forms. MUSC will not accept next-of-kin donations. Potential donors are asked to write to the following address to obtain the necessary forms:
