Donate your body to science
In the Netherlands, it is common practice to opt for burial or cremation when someone dies. Less well-known is the possibility for people to donate their body to science. They ‘donate’ their body so that future physicians and specialists can continue to develop in their field of expertise. This leaflet gives information about donating your body (Dutch only).
How to donate your body

In some cases leftover tissue will be stored for medical research. The leaflet Leftover tissue for medical research (Dutch only) will provide you with information on the rules that apply and your rights as a patient.
