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.
Please allow at least 1 week for response to Shadowing Request Form submissions.
If you are a group interested in learning more about the coroner's office, investigations and autopsies, we offer a one hour educational activity which includes a presentation and tour of the facilities. This is only available for ages 18 and over. We are only able to accomodate groups with less than 10 students and have limited time slots available. Please email Charity Detty, firstname.lastname@example.org with information on the group and contact information.
