Asked Tehran, Tehran Province, Iran

I'v been accepted in the university as a medicine student but I like to join the interpol . Unfortunately cause of my country I couldn't go for it easily . I will be thankful if you can help me with that . I want to know if I can get a job there as a detective with a forensic medicine degree . Is it possible to be both a forensic dr and a detective at the same time? If yes then how ? Thank you

No you cannot. You need a detective mind and legitimate experience to become a detective. A forensics degree helps you work with the facts, but does not give you the ability to think through it. In some countries, it is expected that candidates have a high school diploma or equivalent. Whereas some require formal education in private investigation, criminal justice or related field. For example, Michigan requires applicants to have a bachelor’s or graduate degree in criminal justice, law, security management or computer forensics to qualify for a license.
