The Franklin County Coroner's office encourages educational exploration in the forensic field. We offer internships for college students when pre-arranged through their schools. Students are required to be 18 years old. An internship at the Franklin County Coroner's Office means the student intern would report to the FCCO on a regular basis for a set period of time. Interns must secure a favorable background investigation and urine drug screen prior to beginning the internship. 

Those interested in careers in forensics may be interested in checking out The National Association of Medical Examiners Website and read their document "So You Want to be a Medical Detective?".

Those interested in applying for an internship will need to complete the Application Fall 2024 Internship and include a cover letter explaining your interest and career aspirations, as well as a curriculum vitae with relevant course work and experience. Application and required documents should be submitted through the the following e-mail:  [email protected].  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
