Donation Process

The Donation Process


Donating one's body is simple. Forms for registration to the program are provided on this website or can be sent to you upon request (see contact information below). The forms are straightforward and easy to fill out. You must be of sound mind and 18 years of age or older. There are no upper age limits to donate.

Steps for donating your body to the LMU-DCOM Anatomical Donation Program:

Step 1: Call the Anatomical Donation Program to request the donor forms required for donating your body to the program.

Step 2: Once you receive the forms, complete the information required by the donor, have the forms signed by two witnesses and return the University copies and statistical information forms either by fax or mail (see contact information below).

Mail: LMU-DCOM, Anatomical Donation Program / Anatomy Department, 4th Floor Hamilton Math and Science Building, 6965 Cumberland Gap Parkway, Harrogate, TN 37752

Fax: 423.869.6006

Step 3: After we have received the completed donor forms we will mail back to you:

- Two photocopies of the completed donor form; one copy for the donor's records and one copy for the next-of-kin or executor to keep in the event of the donor's death

- Donor wallet card with contact information

Step 4: It is recommended that you distribute the forms to those individuals who would be immediately notified at the time of your death. This will help ensure that your wishes are carried out.

The privacy of the donor's wishes is priority to this institution and will be protected at all times.
