Richard’s Answer


To be a forensic pathologist:
4 years of college
4 years of medical school
4 years of pathology residency

However in my state a coroner is an elected official and doesn't necessarily need to be a pathologist.

Bethany - you can use Google to easily find information. You can also research the US Department of Labor website under Occupational Handbook. Here you go:
Since coroners are elected officials, each state has different educational requirements. As such, some states require coroners to be licensed and practicing physicians, meaning that educational requirements include an undergraduate degree, a Doctor of Medicine degree and completion of a residency program.
