The ORIGINAL Medicolegal Death Investigator Training Course providing high quality death investigator training since 1978. Now in our 39th year!
Offered three times each year, this five (5) day program teaches individuals how to conduct scientific, systematic and thorough death scene and telephone investigations for Medical Examiner and Coroner offices.
This training is equally valuable to police officers, physicians, nurses, emergency medical personnel, attorneys, forensic scientists and others who are involved with the investigation of violent, suspicious or unexpected deaths that fall under the jurisdiction of medicolegal authorities.
The purpose of this course is to train individuals to fill a critical role in medicolegal offices. With training offered at Saint Louis University, medicolegal death investigators learn to develop the essential facts regarding the death scene, medical history, and other information that assists the Medical Examiner/Coroner in the determination of a person's cause and manner of death.
The course is designed to teach the 29 national guidelines as set forth in the National Institutes of Justice 1999 publication, Death Investigation: A Guide for the Scene Investigator.
The objective of this course is to provide the medicolegal death investigator with the necessary knowledge and technical skills to perform competent medicolegal death investigations. The investigator will then be instructed in the roper way to disseminate the information to forensic scientists and law enforcement personnel so that a coordinated, efficient, and complete death investigation can be achieved.
At the conclusion of the course, students will be assessed as to knowledge gained. This course emphasizes the medical aspects of death investigation and is not designed to be a homicide seminar.
Completion of this course qualifies the attendee to participate in the Master's Courses, a series of advanced death investigation conferences.
This is a training course, not a certification program.
