Deciding to donate your body to science is a priceless gift to help advance medical technology, training, and education. Benefits of whole-body donation include:
- Contributes to a wide variety of medical advancements including surgical device development, advanced disease-based research and hands-on bio skills training.
- Cadavers provide the most realistic representation of the human anatomy, which is an ideal model to perform advanced surgical training.
- Medical professionals and students benefit from human tissue which allows them to develop and practice their skills as technology and practices continue to grow and change.
- UTN covers the basic costs of passing. UTN covers the costs associated with the removal from the place of passing, transportation to one of our facilities, two certified copies of the death certificate and cremation. Chosen by the family, cremated remains are returned to the family within 4-6 weeks, or ashes are spread at sea with our UTN memorial program.
