Update:  Due to staffing levels and case load demands, we have temporarily suspended the Shadowing program until January 2017.  We thank you for your interest and hope you will contact us in January.

The Franklin County Coroner's Office encourages educational exploration in the forensic field. We offer shadowing opportunities for students, over the age of 18, interested in future forensic or medical careers and currently enrolled in forensic programs or the medical field (mid-level providers and above). Shadowing involves a one day visit where you observe the department of your choice, including morgue, investigations, or toxicology.

For information on available shadowing opportunities, please contact us at (614) 525-5290 between the hours of 8:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. Monday-Friday.

Please allow at least 1 week for response to Shadowing Request Form submissions.
