OHSU Whole Body Donation

OHSU is the State of Oregon’s only health and research university. The users of OHSU cadavers include over 50 statewide programs, a dozen reside at OHSU, and the remainder includes mostly state and private institutions of higher education. The majority of the donations are assigned for educational purposes but some play an important role in the progress of biomedical research.

Many more students of anatomy enjoy the privilege of human dissection than in the past. Among the programs that are gifted by the use of cadaveric materials include students of medicine, dentistry, nursing, physician assistant, naturopathetic medicine, chiropractic medicine , physical and occupational therapy and radiation therapy.

Once entered into their program, bodies are embalmed or frozen, stored, distributed, tracked, and retrieved if assigned to a non-OHSU program. Studies are usually completed within two years. After that time, the process of cremation and return of the cremains (cremated remains) to the donor family is undertaken.

Our package price at $400 covers the cost of our professional services and transportation to the university.
