Forensic Pathology Schools and Colleges

Forensic pathologists are licensed medical or osteopathy doctors who specialize in determining the cause of death in heavily decomposed corpses. Since medical school admission is competitive, aspiring forensic pathologists must maintain high GPAs, earn an undergraduate degree in a science related field, and thoroughly prepare for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). It takes 4 years to graduate from medical school.

Medical students complete study in various subjects, including medical ethics and law, microbiology, physiology, and anatomy. They’re also required to complete rotations in hospitals and advanced coursework in disease diagnosis and medical treatments. Medical students can specialize in various fields, including obstetrics, surgery, pediatrics, and internal medicine.

Schools, colleges, and universities offering accredited degree programs and continuing education courses in forensic pathology.
