Under direct supervision of board certified forensic pathologists, the fellow will perform autopsies and postmortem examinations to determine cause and manner of death, attend death scenes in Clayton County, review postmortem radiographs for identification and trauma analysis, collect specimens for toxicology, submit and review histologic specimens, collect evidence to be disseminated to various laboratories and agencies, prepare reports of postmortem examination and autopsies, review pertinent documents such as medical records, police reports, toxicology reports and outside laboratory reports, and testify in court when called. Office cars are available for scene investigations and travel to court.

The fellow will rotate within the different in-house sections of the crime lab as well as participate in daily morgue rounds and weekly departmental conferences. When there is a Child Abuse Investigative Support Center (CAISC) consult, the fellow will have the opportunity to participate in the meeting. When on call, the fellow must be available to assist the Death Investigation Specialists in triaging cases and approving or denying organ and tissue donation. The fellow will be afforded research opportunities through the Department of Pathology, AU-MCG and an opportunity to attend a national meeting where their original research is presented.
