Loaning material

Figure 2. The number of establishments that either loan material or do not loan material

The data we received shows that 21 (54%) Anatomy establishments loan or transfer specimens to other locations, ensuring that the widest group of individuals can benefit from the donated material (Figure 2).

Specimens are loaned for varying reasons. This can include establishments that loan material:

  • within their own institution;
  • to branches of their institution located in other countries and regions; or,
  • to external medical establishments to support clinical training.
