Something to strongly consider is giving directly to your local (or regional) university schools of medicine, anatomical sciences and pathological sciences programs. These gifts are often shared through comparative primate anatomy as well as gross anatomy, even for undergraduate students who may never have the chance to experience that first hand until they reach a graduate program - which is the case in some schools because of availability of such gifts.

While there have been some controversies with some forms of donation and mis-assignment of patient bodies with certain companies and their procurement, gifts like these used in academics are kept within teaching and research. Some might have a slight chance that you can actually decide what you want your body used for.

You need to fill out a Declaration of Consent form, usually with proper notarization. These forms can be obtained by either calling the departments of Anatomical sciences or the department you wish to share your body with. If you decide to change your mind it is always your choice to. This is separate from your organ donation card on the back of your license.

I was fortunate enough as a student and graduate student to experience many physiological gifts given to my University for which I truly will always be grateful for. All the donations where completely respected, cared for and it truly "made the connection" when using a gift like that to learn with it takes the human body to whole separate dimension of learning.

With something like this you could even give back to your own school or your area's school.

This is separate from your organ donation card on the back of your license. Also, some schools might have a few limitations of some things with bodies that have undergone autopsy.

Hello again M J Eaves, and thanks for your reply.

Did you request forms by regular mail or email, from the first two sites?

http://lifequestanatomical.com/

http://www.sciencecare.com/?source=overture


Did you also read the information at the third site and request any forms for your State?

http://www.med.ufl.edu/anatbd/usprograms.html

It might take a while for you to receive an acknowledgement/response, so give it a few more days, if you made your request by email.

M J Eaves, what city are you located nearest?

I would like to perhaps forward you on to the departments specifically that would consider a donation to the schools or at least give you some information for them.

As a student fortunate enough to have the gifts like these, I can tell you the mere fact you are looking into this is invaluable.
