Medical Examiners

News Image Regional Forensic Center

All of our Medical Examiners are Board Certified Forensic Pathologists. There are fewer than 400 in the United States. They are licensed professionals who perform autopsies and other investigations to determine a cause of death. Not only do they practice medicine but teach, as well. All of the RFC Medical Examiners are Associate Professors at the University of TN School of Medicine and lecture nationwide. Their achievements and awards are too numerous to list on one page. Knox County Regional Forensic Center is thankful to have them on our team. Their expertise is vital to this region.
