Criteria for Acceptance

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.
