Jessica’s Answer

A coroner is an elected official. A medical examiner is a doctor who does autopsies. If you would like to be a medical examiner, you need to get a 4-year undergraduate degree, then go to medical school, which takes 4 years. You then complete a pathology residency, specializing in the type of pathology you would like to pursue. If you would like to do autopsies, you would complete a residency in forensic pathology. Good luck!

Hi Ashley!

The education requirements to become a coroner vary by state, they typically need to have four years of college and a bachelor's degree, along with requirements for medical school. In some states, coroners must be licensed medical doctors. In many jurisdictions, coroners are appointed or hired by the government, but in some areas coroners are elected.
