Second-year medical students and others attend a memorial service to honor individuals who donated their bodies to the School of Medicine.
   

An annual ceremony to recognize individuals who have donated their bodies to support medical research and education at the UC Davis School of Medicine was held last fall on the UC Davis campus. The service also provided second-year students the opportunity to pay respects to the bodies from which they learned.

Medical students work with human cadavers in their first-year of training in the gross anatomy course. Cadavers also are used in research laboratories to better understand disease and by emergency medicine and other specialty physicians and residents, who practice new surgical techniques.

Established in 1968, the Donated Body Program at the UC Davis School of Medicine has received more than 2,400 donations and has 4,500 living individuals registered as donors. A memorial site honoring donors, dedicated in 2000, includes a bench, plaque and trees.

For more information about the Donated Body Program, contact the program office at (530) 752-2100 or dbpinfo@ucdavis.edu, or visit the Department of Cell Biology and Human Anatomy's Web site at http://cellbio.ucdavis.edu/.
