Welcome to the short course on ‘Forensic Medicine’.
Healthcare professionals who specialize in forensics serve as liaisons between law and medical science. The term “forensics” means “pertaining to law,” and forensic experts and medical professionals are integral parts of the justice system. Forensic pathologists, doctors, nurses, and technicians use medical principles and scientific procedures to analyze the physical evidence associated with criminal investigations.
A healthcare professional who works in the forensic medicine field aims to discover the cause of a person’s death, injury, or disease. She does so in the pursuit of societal justice. Healthcare professionals who specialize in forensic medicine serve extremely important roles that require a combination of precise scientific knowledge with a sincere desire to protect their communities.
