Abstract: Based on a strong willed body donation registration and receptionprogram, the number of donation for medical education purposes has been increasing steadily during the past decade. Willed body donation not only provides a legal, consistent and high-quality source of cadaver for anatomical teaching, but also expands the scope of anatomy into clinical training and research. The spirit of donation has rejuvenated the traditional anatomical teaching via introducing humanity, creative thinking and clinical collaboration, all of which have significantly motivated the medical students.

Key words: willed body donation, anatomy, endoscopic endoscope system, integration of basic and clinical medicine
