Thus continuous availability of the cadavers is one of the major concerns of medical colleges, health science institutions and biomedical research organization in order to fulfill objectives of anatomy curriculum of the undergraduate, postgraduate and researchers in the medical sciences. The present study is an attempt towards creating a database of donated human bodies for the medical education. Objectives: a) To promote the public education for the purpose and importance of body donation. b) To increase the awareness of body donation in female population. Materials and Methods: The cadaveric data from the department of Anatomy, DYPatil Medical College, Kolhapur were obtained for the period 1994-2014 (10 Years); for the purpose of study.
