I will be graduating from Ashford Univ with a degree in Social and Criminal Justice in Feb, 2011. I am interested in becoming a crime scene investigator with an ME. How do I go about applying for this position and do all ME offices require an internship program?

Re: Crime Scene Inv. with a Medical Examiner's office

There usually aren't crime scene investigators at a ME office.  They are called Medicolegal Death Investigators.  A background in criminal justice as well as anatomy would be helpful.  We offered a reserve program at my ME office and oftened hired from the reserves to fill an open position.  Check out the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators (ABMDI) for more information at http://medschool.slu.edu/abmdi/index.php.  They offer a certification program for Medicolegal Death Investigators currently employed at a ME office.  Let me know if you have any more questions.
