An individual may not give both organs and the body for transplant and research purposes. Body donations go to a medical school of anatomy where they are used by medical students for anatomical study and dissection. There may be a cost to the deceased person's estate when donating a body to a medical school.
Those considering organ or body donation should advise family members. At time of death, unexpected requests may cause confusion and strife among distraught family members.
