Date Event Description
February 2, 2017 Chronic Diarrhea: Challenging Cases
Details
Diarrheal disease, which in most often caused by infectious pathogens, is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, especially in children. This is particularly true in developing countries. Recent outbreaks of infectious diarrhea in developed countries, including the USA, are often attributed to food handling and distribution practices and highlight the need for continued vigilance in this area. Another common cause of infectious diarrhea, Clostridium difficle infection (CDI), has historically been associated with the use of antibiotics and exposure to a health-care setting but is now increasingly common in the community in persons who lack the typical risk factors. Recent scientific advances have also led to new and proposed new therapies for infectious diarrhea, including fecal microbiota transplant (FMT) for recurrent C. difficile infection (RCDI), probiotics for prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD) and CDI, and the use of zinc supplementation in the treatment of acute diarrhea in children. Other therapies that have been in use for decades, such as the oral rehydration solution (ORS), continue to be targets of scientific advancement in an effort to improve delivery and efficacy. Finally, post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome (PI-IBS) is an increasingly recognized occurance. Attempts to understand the mechanism behind this phenomenon are underway and may provide insight into potential treatment options.

April 3 - April 7, 2017 Saint Louis University Department of Pathology, Medicolegal Death Investigator Training Course - April 2017
Register   Details

The purpose of this 5 day course is to provide training in medicolegal death investigation. Prior to the institution of this course 40 years ago, there was NO training available for medicolegal death investigators. Mary Fran Ernst and Dr. Gantner developed this training course to provide training for those who were tasked with investigating deaths. Fast forward 40 years, we are still the premier basic trainer for medicolegal death investigators.  Anyone who plays a role in the investigation of medicolegal deaths, whether they be coroners, police officers, homicide detectives or medicolegal death investigators can benefit from this course.  It provides basic information on the key players in a medicolegal death investigation by providing lectures from practitioners such as medical examiners, toxicologists, anthropologists, odontologists, crime scene investigators, and homicide investigators on what type of information from the scene should be collected by the death investigator and how that information can help them with the determination of cause and manner of death.  The participants are then given training on how to gather information at various types of death scenes.  The week ends with a review of courtroom techniques and a discussion on social media's impact on next of kin notification.  This week long course can prepare both novice and seasoned investigators to more effectively and efficiently process a death scene and gather all of the information needed. 

Participants need to be currently employed in a position such as funeral director, coroner, death investigator, law enforcement, or other medicolegal field to register for this course.

Participants who complete this Basic Course are eligible to take the Masters Course held every other year. This is a case-based course which covers new techniques and high profile cases. These lectures provide training on what to do in unique situations and how new techniques can assist with obtaining evidence and/or identification.

These courses are training courses, not certification courses or degree courses. We offer continuing education certificates to those wanting to turn in the credits to their professional board to maintain certification. Please refer to the accreditation tab for a list of approved types of CE. We will also provide a certificate of attendance at the completion of the course to all that attend that can be used for your employee portfolio.
