The ultimate donation that an individual can give is the gift of their whole body after death to advance anatomic education and clinical training of medical students, physicians and other medical personnel. Voluntary whole body donations by generous individuals are relied upon as a resource to help physicians and other medical personnel complete their required learning, as they prepare themselves to provide for outstanding care for the living.
