Medical examiner v. coroner: Same job, different qualifications? p3

We are finishing up our discussion of the difference between coroners and medical examiners. As we have said, the terms are often used interchangeably, but they are not strictly identical jobs. While the coroner may be a physician, there is generally no requirement for an active medical license. That is not to say that some states do not require coroners to be MDs.

Medical examiner v. coroner: Same job, different qualifications? p2

A doctor is a doctor, even if he or she is a coroner or a medical examiner. The job does not affect the duties and accountabilities of a medical professional. If you have a license to practice, you are bound by the rules, regulations and statutes of the state you practice in. Even if your patients are already dead when they come into your office.
