Commemoration

Our body donors contribute substantially to the quality of medical education.  At the University of Melbourne we hold an annual Commemorative Thanksgiving Service to acknowledge the generosity of our donors.  This service is attended by family and friends of our body donors, with anatomy staff and students of the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience.

We have also recently commissioned a sculpture by renowned artist Heather Swann to be situated on campus in honour of our donors and which will serve both as a daily reminder to staff and students of the donor gift and also as a site of remembrance for family and friends to visit year round.  For further information please contact the Body Donor Co-ordinator on (3) 83445809 or by email anatomy-donors@unimelb.edu.au.
