The study of human anatomy is an essential component of medical education. The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health depends heavily on donors in order to continue to provide advanced anatomy education to students entering the health professions. At UW-Madison, this includes medical students, physical and occupational therapy students, and physician assistant students. Practicing physicians, physician assistants, and therapists, as well as residents-in-training, also rely on gifted bodies for advancing their anatomical knowledge and for training in specific clinical procedures.
