JABSOM Willed Body Program reopens acceptance of donated bodies and new enrollment

After a seven-month pause, the Willed Body Program of the University of Hawaiʻi John A. Burns School of Medicine is once again accepting body donations. The acceptance of Anatomical Gift Donation forms for new enrollment will also resume, but applications will be reviewed in the order they were received. We thank you in advance for your patience as we process applications.

As each anatomical donation contributes directly to new understandings, each donor is greatly appreciated. Each gift is valued and honored. Students and staff treat each donor with the utmost respect and dignity. In July 2023, due to an abundance of donations, the program that provides educational and scientific study for our students and doctors had to be paused. 

We wholeheartedly apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused for the families of our donors. Since its inception in 1968, the support from our community to the Willed Body Program has been tremendous. We are deeply grateful to all donors who ensure JABSOM’s mission of attaining lasting optimal health for all continues.
