Information for Funeral Directors, Pre-Need Counselors, and Related Parties
The University of Michigan Anatomical Donations Program understands the need for traditional funeral services such as viewing and visitation. Therefore, generally, but not always, we allow visitation at the funeral home.
There is no age limit for our donors, and people with cancer are commonly accepted. If a family requests organ/tissue/bone donation and/or an autopsy, anatomical donation is still very possible.
We encourage you to contact us at (734) 764-4359 so that we can complete an evaluation and quickly give your families acceptance into the University of Michigan Anatomical Donations Program to benefit education, research, and ultimately society.
