Resources for Medical Examiners and Coroners

Gift of Life Donor Program works closely with medical examiners and coroners throughout the region to ensure the successful outcomes for organ and tissue donation.

Coroner and Medical Examiner Offices play an important role in the organ and tissue donation process. Since all unexpected deaths require Coroner or Medical Examiner review, their cooperation and support is vital for ensuring successful organ and tissue donations, benefiting thousands of transplant recipients each year.

The National Association of Medical Examiners (NAME) formalized its support of organ and tissue donation in an organizational Position Paper. A link to locate this document is listed below.

We encourage Coroner and Medical Examiner Offices to subscribe to the Clinical Update, Gift of Life’s quarterly newsletter for healthcare professionals, Coroners, Medical Examiners and Funeral Directors. This one-page newsletter offers transplantation and donation news, statistics and case studies.
