Department of Anatomy
Body Donation will be accepted from the tricity of Chandigarh, Mohali & Panchkula
Cadaveric dissection is the integral part of the curriculum of any medical school. It helps a student to learn topographic localization of tissues of the body. The surgeons also require it to update their knowledge. The anatomists in most of the medical institutions feel the shortage of cadavers for imparting training to medical students. Hence, there is a strong need to popularize the message to common masses to donate their bodies after death which can be preserved by embalming and later can be used for teaching and research purposes.
A person in his life can express his will in writing (form can be downloaded) and can convince his next kith and kin that after death his body may be donated. The dead body along with the death certificate/ declaration of death certificate and a photograph should be transported within 3-5 hrs to the Department of Anatomy of the PGIMER, Chandigarh (or to any other near by medical college/institute). In case of delay in the transportation, the body should be kept in mortuary or on ice slabs. In case of any difficulty in transporting, the Anatomy Department will provide vehicle for the same within the tricity of Chandigarh, Panchkula & Mohali. If the body is brought during non-working hours, it can be kept in cold chamber in the mortuary of PGI which is open 24 hours on all days. In case of any difficulty please contact us.
