Forensic pathologist

Forensic pathologists are medical doctors who examine tissue samples and perform autopsies to find clues about the cause of death when crimes are suspected.

Pathologists, who usually specialize in anatomical pathology, are certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
