The Program in Human Anatomy Education was established in 1999 as part of the reorganization of basic science departments at the University of Minnesota. It has been a teaching program administered from within the Office of the Dean for Medical Education. In 2006 the Program was assimilated into the Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology. The Program Director is Anthony Weinhaus, Ph.D and Assistant Professor, Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology.

The Anatomy Bequest Program
The Program in Human Anatomy Education could not function without access to cadavers for anatomical dissection and study. The Anatomy Bequest Program exists to fill this special and important function. It is the mission of the Anatomy Bequest Program to ensure the availability of human bodies to aid in the education of health practitioners within the state of Minnesota. To fulfill this mission, the Anatomy Bequest Program provides for the teaching needs of the University of Minnesota and for the teaching needs of all other post-secondary schools in the state of Minnesota that have anatomy teaching programs using human materials, with the exception of the Mayo Clinic. For details on the Anatomy Bequest Program or for information on how to become a donor, follow this link to their web site.
