Forensic Pathology Fellowship
The NAME-accredited and IAC&ME-accredited Clark County Office of the Coroner/Medical Examiner (CCOCME), in conjunction with the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV, offers a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship training program in forensic pathology.
Our mission is to provide top-quality education and experience for future forensic pathologists. We commit to serving our community by investigating death within our jurisdictional criteria as defined by statute code. The result of our investigations shall be delivered in a way that is informative, collaborative, and serves the betterment of health and public safety. We commit to the values of excellence, accountability, respect, leadership, integrity, and public service.
The forensic pathology fellowship aims to narrow the unmet needs of the forensic workforce by training and retaining fellows in the state of Nevada. Our program aims to deliver physicians who can function competently and independently in any type of jurisdiction or academic setting. They shall leave our program ready to become boarded in this area of specialty by the American Board of Pathology.
