Considering organ donation, cadaver supply routes and procurement rates, it seems that resources are limited. It is discussed from a broad perspective that the evaluation of ethical approaches in terms of cadaver needs in anatomy education and research areas, and the use of bodies obtained through donation are more appropriate.

In this study, the questions directed to the students were designed to assess their views on cadaveric and organ donation, their awareness of the issue, and their attitudes in case the person or his/her relatives need organ donation.
