Forensic Fellowship Program
Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office offers a Forensic Pathology Fellowship in conjunction with the Medical College of Wisconsin.
The forensic pathology fellow conducts a substantial number of medicolegal autopsies on routine and unusual cases, and is given substantial control of cases (natural, accidental, suicidal and homicidal) at all levels, commensurate with their increasing ability.
Training during the year includes rotations in toxicology, forensic anthropology, and the state and local crime labs. The trainee is afforded the opportunity to testify in court, under supervision and direction, and is also encouraged to witness testimony by others who are experienced in courtroom dialogue.
In our office, consultations are presented to all of the senior pathologists for review and advice. The trainee is allowed to actively participate in these interesting consultations. In addition to the case-by-case instruction, the trainee will be involved in didactic teaching and should be a participant in the annual Medicolegal Investigation of Death seminar conducted each year for investigators and law enforcement personnel.
Our program provides one year of in-depth training in forensic pathology, and applicants must have completed training in either straight anatomic or combined clinical and anatomic pathology in an ACGME-accredited residency program by the beginning of the fellowship year. The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office accepts one fellow per academic year. Applications can be obtained by contacting Karen Domagalski, 933 W. Highland Ave., Milwaukee, WI 53233, 414-223-1200 or e-mail at email@example.com.
