An individual who is at least 18 years of age may make an anatomical gift to the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA Donated Body Program.
UCLA only accepts donations of the entire body. With the exception of the removal of corneas for eye transplant, removal of other organs or tissue at the time of death renders the body unsuitable for anatomical study and acceptance would be on a case by case basis.
There is no upper age limit for the Donated Body Program. UCLA accepts donors who reside within the six Southern California counties of Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside, San Diego and Ventura.
If a registered donor dies outside of a 75-mile radius of the University, transportation can be arranged by the University, but at the expense of the legal next of kin. When this happens, there will be a nominal fee for the securing and filing of a death certificate.
