The Willed Body Program at ACOM provides an opportunity for individuals to make whole body donations to medical education and research.
Each donation to the Willed Body Program is a deeply appreciated gift. Your donation will always be treated with the utmost dignity and respect.
An anatomical donation to ACOM will aid in educating multiple classes of medical students. In turn, those future medical professionals will take the knowledge learned from your generous donation and apply that information when treating each patient. As a result, every whole body donation gifted to the Willed Body Program will serve to touch the lives of countless individuals.
When choosing your end of life arrangements, consider making the ultimate gift.
