Leaving your body to medical science.

I would quite like to do this but it seems a pretty convoluted process to arrange.

Anyone done it? If so how did you go about it?

How to donate your body and a beginners guide, although I didn't know you could repeat the offer.

That's why they want them.

They can have mine as long as they check that I am gone. I thought there was a simple donor card method. If there isn't there should be. Isn't it possible to just put your name on a register, because I am sure I did so a good few years ago now. I also informed my family of my wishes.

If cutting me in to little bits and pieces helps a young medical student in his/her studies, the why not? If they want to discover why I am a genius then that's o.k by me too, they can fiddle around with my brain to their heart's content as well. I wonder why the brain seems to be a separate item for donating?

Quickbeam. Thanks for the link, I shall now have a go at making sure I am perhaps more useful to somebody, after I am dead and gone, than I have been previously.

Think you have been staying Scotland for far to long.

That would really cut down on the Funeral Expenses when you eventually part from this world.

Think they are practising on my body already - went to And E with a simple problem of something stuck in my throat and this morning got a letter from a surgeon saying they want to open me up next month :0(

Much rather wait until I'm gone then they can do what they like.

Well I bit the bullet and e-mailed the contact in Liverpool University. Got a quick reply saying application form will be in the post today. Sounds like they are pretty efficient.

Emailed Edinburgh University and I await a reply. I must admit that was a strange email to write, but I did try to lighten it somewhat by putting in the subject box the question "Do you want my body?"

Don't let them talk you into an early handover date.
