Transcript of Forensic Pathologist

The American Academy of Forensic Sciences, http://www.aafs.org/
The American Board of Forensic Document Examiners, http://www.abfde.org/
The National Center for Forensic Science, http://www.abfde.org/ But where to go?! WHY? Well let me tell you a story. Goal What is needed Well it started by watching Bones and NCIS (:
But becoming a Forensic pathologist would let me discover more than the truth, since an autopsy shows how the person died it shows more than that like an unknown illness. Did I ever shadowed a person, that can relate to this job? "By working in forensic pathology, you are not just making a living; you are making a real difference."
“It is the most brutal killing I have seen in all my years as medical examiner. Standing in the shadows of the station, gazing down at the left-overs of what was once a man, I have the fleeting thought that perhaps I am in the wrong profession.
Then I remember: There is a need for what we do in forensic pathology. I have a purpose. I can find the person who performed this act, so scornful and belittling of the human spirit. I can help.”
— “Dissecting Death” - Frederick Zugibe Forensic Pathologist BY: Laura Borunda Forensic Organizations JUST KIDDING What is Forensic Pathology? Forensic pathologist can also be named as medical examiners and they examine a body who died suddenly, unexpectedly or violently. Forensic pathologist are the ones who determined what was the cause and the manner of death. THE TREASURE (resources) http://explorehealthcareers.org/en/career/129/forensic_pathologist
http://www.forensicpathologist.com/duties-responsibilities/ Educational requirements The education to become a forensic pathologist may vary in states and countries. In the USA the requirement is four years of college, followed four years to get a medical degree. Afterward a four or five years of residency (4 for anatomic pathology or 5 for clinical and anatomic). Don't worry here's the TOP universities to get a degree of forensic pathology Some near?
- Baylor college of medicine
- University of Texas Southwestern Medical School Ohio State University ( Columbus, Ohio)
University of Minnesota (Minneapolis)
Boston University Would a Forensic Pathologist fit for me? I guess it would because instead of watching Bones and NCIS, I might as well do the "act." Like be in the show, be part of the game.
Of course I would need to go get a degree and it would take like 10 years, but still, at the end it would be all worthy. It would be worthy because, I think, I want to spend my life (career) something that gives justice for the deceased and for the living.
I would like to work for the government because I would receive many extra benefits including health and life insurance. Some Forensic Pathologist have a salary of $91,600 to $196,500 if they also work for the government. Some work sites/hours Typically, many forensic pathologists work normal hours – 8am – 5pm Monday to Friday. However, those that work in private crime laboratories often have longer working hours. THE ACTIVITY! C: Instructions:
1)Get a sheet of a paper and a pencil
2) OBSERVE (this step would be explained)
3) 2 Pieces of tape would be handed down, place them at the corner of your desk
4) Rub your finger on the gray shaded part you created enough to see pattern on your finger
5) Grab 1 piece of tape and place it on the finger, press lightly
6)Take the tape it place it on the paper and state which finger it was ( Left or right, Pinky, Ring, Middle, Index and thumb)
7) Choose a different finger and repeat the steps 4-6 (: Forensic Pathologist have many different ways to identify the person and one of the ways is to grab the corps DNA. The three basic patterns of fingerprint ridges are the arch, loop, and whorl. Double Loop whorl Accidental Whorl Plain whorl Central Pocket Whorl Lunar Loop Radial Loop Tented Arch Plain Arc Forensic pathologists are required to work in a huge range of situations. Whilst most will spend their days in the lab, others will be out visiting crime scenes and others will be acting as expert witnesses in criminal and civil court cases around the country. In the past rotations, Rehab, there was a microbiology unit which I went. I shadowed a Clinical Microbiologist who was doing some test on body fluids seeing if any fungus or bacteria can develop. Some of the types of investigations that a forensic pathologist will take out on a body include toxicologic, microscopic, photographic, radiologic, serologic and microbiologic studies. Does someone know the Difference of a Medical Examiner (ME) & a Forensic Pathologist? The difference is primarily that forensic pathologists don't always perform autopsies. They approach cases from more of a biological level while the ME performs the autopsy Something that work or relate to Forensic Pathologist duties? Crime Scene Investigator (CSI)
Forensic Biologist
Forensic Chemist
Forensic Toxicologist
