Job Description for Tissue Procurement Coordinator

A tissue procurement coordinator works in the healthcare industry to find suitable organ and tissue donors, as well as uses national computer matching systems to find best matches for these donated tissues. In some cases, the coordinator's work can be straightforward with the potential donor indicating they want to participate in organ donation at the time of death. However, a prospective donor's family may also be approached about tissue donation. In either event, the procurement coordinator then works with both the doctors and the prospective donors' families to assess the viability of donation.
