The forensic pathology fellowship at Indiana University School of Medicine and the Marion County Coroner’s Office provided a fantastic training experience. Under the guidance of Dr. Poulos and Dr. O’Neill, I feel strongly that this program prepared me to enter the forensic pathology workforce. They, along with all the attendings working at the office, provided a knowledgeable and friendly work environment that helped me to improve and grow as a forensic pathologist. The office provided a diverse caseload that allowed me to expand my knowledge and technical skills. After graduating from the program, I joined a coroner’s office in the Midwest.
The transition from fellow to attending has felt seamless, which is a testament to the training that this program provides. I highly recommend the IU Forensic Pathology Fellowship to anyone pursuing a career in forensic pathology.
