Forensic Pathology Fellowship


Dallas County and UT Southwestern Medical School offer a one-year ACGME-accredited Forensic Pathology Fellowship Training Program with special emphasis on comprehensive, scientific death investigation. Two fellowship positions are funded for each academic year. The Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences is located in Dallas, Texas, near the UT Southwestern campus. The facility serves many north Texas counties, examining approximately 4,200 decedents each year. The fellows are expected to complete approximately 200–250 forensic autopsies during the year and are actively involved with the death investigation division of the Office of the Medical Examiner.
