The Original Medicolegal Death Investigator Training Course, presented by Saint Louis University, School of Medicine/Department of Pathology, will be held August 19-22, 2024, at the Marriott St. Louis Grand in St. Louis, MO.

This course provides basic information on the key players in a medicolegal death investigation by providing lectures from practitioners such as medical examiners, toxicologists, anthropologists, odontologists, crime scene investigators, and homicide investigators regarding what type of information should be collected by the death investigator and how that information can help them with the determination of cause and manner of death.  Course participants are provided training on how to gather information at various types of death scenes.  The course content can prepare both novice and seasoned investigators to more effectively and efficiently process a death scene and gather all of the information needed. 

Participants need to be currently employed in a position such as funeral director, coroner, death investigator, law enforcement, or another medicolegal field to register for this course. 

ABMDI Credit is approved for this course for those already AMBDI certified!
