Loaning material

The data we received in 2019 shows that 23 Anatomy establishments loan or transfer specimens to other locations (graph below). This ensures that the widest group of individuals can benefit from the donated material.

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.
