Forensic Medicine Section

The practice of emergency medicine has encountered with increasing frequency the specialty of forensic science. Emergency physicians are now expected to know how to gather and preserve evidence from our patients that are victims of gun shot/stab wounds, pediatric sexual assault, physical abuse or neglect. Patients that are victims of sexual assault (including drug facilitated), domestic violence, and elder abuse also require unique skills for competent medico-legal evaluation.
