Pathology & Medicolegal Death Investigation
The medicolegal death investigation (MDI) system, which includes Medical Examiner and Coroner (MEC) offices, serves a fundamental role for supporting public safety by conducting death scene investigations, performing forensic autopsies, providing cause and manner of death determinations, and completing death certificates. The FTCoE supports the MDI system through hosting events and webinars; supporting practitioners, publications, and podcast episodes; and collaborating with professional organizations, such as the National Association of Medical Examiners (NAME) and the International Association of Coroners and Medical Examiners (IACME).
