Guide to a Career as a Forensic Pathologist

Forensic pathology is one of the most exciting scientific careers in the world, and is focused on the reasons, the methods and the investigations of human death.

Becoming a forensic pathologist is not as easy as becoming a medical doctor, though the process is similar. Typically, forensic pathologists must complete their training for the medical degree and then pursue training in forensic pathology, which can take 4-6 years following graduation from medical school. After the successful completion of pathology training, they can be certified by the American Board of Pathology.

If you want to pursue a career as a forensic pathologist, you must be dedicated. Approximately 34% of the students who enter into forensic pathology training drop out before completing their education. The training is long and exhaustive, which is necessary because of the implications of the job. Many forensic pathologists also have law degrees because they must be experts in the field of medicolegal forensic investigation.

The first job of a forensic pathologist is to determine the cause and manner of death. Usually, forensic pathologists work for the medical examiner system in a U.S. state and perform autopsies on every individual who comes through their morgue. In most states, autopsies are required for any death that is not witnessed by a licensed physician, and may still be required if the cause of death is not immediately obvious. The cause and manner of death is usually central to a police investigation of a violent crime, which makes their job even more important.

Forensic pathologists do not work just with the dead, however, and must also have solicitous personalities. They are faced with grieving victims, impatient law enforcement personnel, nervous politicians and a host of support staff. They must be willing to work tediously on endless piles of paperwork and respond quickly to demands from law enforcement personnel.

Most forensic pathologists have odd hours because deaths occur at all times of day and night. Some medical examiner systems require that a forensic pathologist be on call at all times, which can mean rotating shifts. The salaries for forensic pathologists are determined by the state, and can reach into the low six figures.

In addition to work in the laboratory and morgue, forensic pathologists are often subpoenaed to court in their capacity as an expert witness. This is especially true in matters of violent crime when the exact cause and manner of death is important for a jury to understand.
