Master of Science in Biomedical Science / Human Donation Science
University of Toledo

Program Details

Organ procurement coordinators facilitate the organ donation process from beginning to end. They are the liaisons between the donor’s family, the coroner, the medical and nursing staff, the organ procurement organization and ultimately the transplant surgeon. As a result, coordinators must skillfully and diplomatically deal with a number of issues, agendas and personalities in order to achieve a successful organ transplant. The online MS in Biomedical Science with a concentration in Human Donation Science program is designed to prepare individuals to coordinate and oversee the organ donation and transplantation process. It is geared toward individuals already working in the field who have an affiliation to an organ procurement organization, a transplant center, and a tissue bank.
