In order to donate your body to science, you will need to have setup the anatomical donation before death. We charge $550 to process anatomical donations.
Once a deceased person has chosen to donate their body to science, there are a few steps necessary to complete the process. First, we need to collect information from the family as soon as possible to complete the death certificate. Usually we can do this at the same time as we pick up the body of the deceased. We submit the death certificate to the state as quickly as possible. A drafted copy of the death certificate is required for a medical school to accept a deceased’s body.
Following the death certificate submission, we take the deceased’s body to the medical school where it is being donated as soon as possible so the school can prepare it to ensure preservation for study. If someone passes away from certain infections, they may not be eligible for donation. Medical schools also have weight restrictions for anatomical donation. We can help you communicate with the medical school receiving the anatomical donation to ensure it can receive the body, and we can work with you to come up with a plan if the school does not accept the body.
