Willed Body Program
The Willed Body Program in the Division of Clinical Anatomy makes it possible for donors to make anatomical gifts and whole body donations to support medical education, clinical training and research in the Upstate. Our goal is to assist those who wish to make whole body donation of their own or a relative’s body after death.
Donation of one’s body is authorized by the Anatomical Gift Act of the state of South Carolina and similar laws of all other states and a free simple process makes it convenient for individuals to make this priceless gift. The process for donation is simple, and at no cost to the donors or survivors. The Willed Body Program at GHS thanks you for your consideration and donation.
