Acceptance is contingent on each donor’s medical suitability at the time of death. MERI’s Board, staff, faculty, students and researchers appreciate all who generously plan and hope to become anatomic donors. These gifts allow for the continuous improvement of patient care.
MERI must limit its acceptance of anatomic donors to those donors who at the time of death can be “good teachers,” free of infectious diseases that could harm the learner. Additionally, the donor’s physical condition must be suitable to create a safe, high-quality learning experience.
We cannot accept a donor who has moved to or passed away in a state that is not within the Genesis service area.
