Block rotations will include a high-volume of autopsy service days, as well as dedicated research time and ancillary teaching, which includes one week each of training in toxicology, anthropology/odontology, cardiovascular pathology/neuropathology, and legal, as well as two weeks of training in criminalistics/firearms. Fellows will also accompany our medicolegal death investigators to at least 25 death scene investigations throughout their fellowship year. Fellows will be given first priority with respect to daily autopsy case selection and availability under the direct supervision of our board-certified forensic pathologists. As fellows progress through their fellowship year, they will be given graduated responsibility in assisting with teaching WMed students and visiting medical trainees. Our fellows are encouraged and provided financial support to attend and present at two annual national forensic conferences and the Michigan Association of Medical Examiners (MAME) annual meeting.
