Body Donor Program
The body donor program at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania) provides anatomical material which allows medical students at the College
to study firsthand the intricacies of the human body and the relationships between
body systems. This is something that even the best medical textbooks cannot teach.
Body Donation Benefits
Body donation is a generous and humanitarian decision. There is much to be learned
from the human body. Those who donate their remains to science make a tremendous contribution
to the knowledge and depth of understanding surrounding medical education.
Donating to PCOM
In Pennsylvania, individuals who wish to donate their remains to science must contact
the Humanity Gifts Registry (HGR) of Pennsylvania. If an individual wishes to donate their body directly to Philadelphia College of
Osteopathic Medicine, they must inform the Human Gifts Registry.
