Once the decision is made to donate a body to the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA Donated Body Program, completion of registration forms is required.
For immediate Registration, visit our Donor Form page to download registration forms:
The University reserves the right to accept or reject an anatomical gift as set forth by health and safety code §7154 (a). Unless provided in the donor's will, the family or estate of the donor may decline to assume the financial responsibility of the transportation from outside the 75-mile transportation radius. If such were to occur, the Donated Body Program relinquishes all claims to the body.
If a donor changes residence, establishes an attorney-in-fact under a valid durable power of attorney that expressly authorizes the attorney-in-fact to make an anatomical gift of all or part of the principal's body, the death of a spouse occurs, or the marital status changes after being registered, the Donated Body Program should be notified immediately.
The information contained on the Vital Statistics Sheet is used to prepare the Death Certificate required by the state of California. The Death Certificate is a permanent, legal, public record and must contain correct information.
