How does this differ from Forensic medicine? -- Jussi-Ville Heiskanen 16:37, Jan 25, 2004 (UTC)

my question[edit]

i am currently a student in high school looking to go into forensic pathology and i would like to know the basics. what is the most difficult and what is the easiest.

Get into the best college you can get into. Study a pre-medical curriculum and get grades of B or better. Then apply to medical school. Your specialty will fall into place from there.
Patrick Sweet, M.D.

I am in highschool as well and I really feel that forensic pathology is the job I want to go into. I have a GPA of 3.5 and rising, I am getting invovled in HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America), BETA (a club for students with a GPA of 3.5 and above), the debate team, and spanish club. I come from a long line of people in the medical field and I have always known that I would go into it as well. If you wouldn't mind sending any information on pathology to my email address: I would be very greatful. Alisha Smith, 15

I created a section called Becoming a forensic pathologist and added a few external links that go through the details. It is sorta disappointing that none of the larger pathology organizations (e.g. Canadian Association of Pathologists, College of American Pathologists (CAP), American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP)) have a nice description of the path one has to follow to pathology -- forensic or otherwise.

hello i am a student also in high school and i have a GPA of 4 out of 5 . i am not a citizen of the U.S. but am planning to reside after i have finished school here in jamaica.i really would like to know ifmp into going to school after ive finished one ? and does it really take that much years of schooling? thanx for your help as i await your speedy response.

I know that mortuary techs are now generally called "medicolegal death investigators," but neither term has an article on Wikipedia. Could someone please create an article about the people who assist medical examiners, including the education and certification requirements? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:45, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

"Becoming a Pathologist"?[edit]

Is this section really necessary/appropriate? I could be mistaken, but I don't think any other profession page has a "Becoming a [Profession]" heading. -- MacAddct1984 (talk • contribs) 01:42, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

  • Whilst it may not be neccesary, I don't see why its not appropriate. As far as I can see, if one wanted to know how to become a pathologist, one might well put the word pathology into a search engine and be directed here. If that is what people might want to know about pathology, why shouldn't we answer the question here? Pathologists have beocme the heros of many TV series lately, so it is logical that this particular job should be amongst the first to have this question answered. I suggest that a brief summary is very apt.

IceDragon64 (talk) 21:34, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

  • I would go one step further and suggest the problem is not that the section is included here, but more that the section should be included for other professions. (talk) 22:51, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Which states have coroner systems?[edit]

I am considering including this link: in the "Further Reading" section. It details which states have a coroner system and which states have a medical examiner system run by the state. Feel free to contact me if you are opposed to this addition. Ride or die baby (talk) 00:39, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
