Danny’s Answer

I was a homicide detective who worked closely with, and depended greatly, on forensic pathologists! I could not have worked my cases without there expertise and death determination! Those that I have worked with at the L.A. County Coroner’s Office are top notch professionals and I have developed many long lasting friendships.

Hi Sophia,

The requirements typically include a bachelor's degree in a hard science (e.g. biology), medical school, and lastly completing a residency. College is typically four years, and medical school is at least another four years so please know it is a large commitment. You can see an example of requirements from Purdue University:

Best of luck to you!
