New Online Medical Forensics Course Offered

June 22, 2006  | 

To further educate individuals in law enforcement, legal, and medical professions about the particulars of medical forensics, A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Health Sciences (ASHS) is offering a premier online medical forensics course available nationwide. The university is currently accepting registration for fall classes.

A.T. Still University is recognized for its residential and online health professions courses. The medical forensics course is offered by ASHS’ Advanced Physician Assistant Studies program. Medical Forensics (APA 644) introduces participants to basic aspects of forensic medicine. The 12-week course begins Aug. 28 and is a four-credit, non-degree college course. The course may also be used to satisfy one of the requirements to sit for certification for the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigation Registry Exam and will be offered during Fall, Winter, and Spring sessions beginning in Fall 2006. The coursework is self-paced covering many different areas of forensic medicine.

The course instructor is Dr. Ann Bucholtz, who is certified by the American board of Pathology in Clinical, Anatomic, and Forensic Medicine, and has served as the chief medical examiner for Nashville, Tenn. Dr. Bucholtz has also served as an associate medical examiner for Arizona’s Cochise, Pima, and Maricopa Counties.

To take the course, a Bachelors’ Degree with a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA is required, as well as a $60 application fee. Required course cost is $845 including the required textbook. This online course includes Power Point presentations, readings, postings and discussions with classmates, questions, and case studies related to the module topic, and online quizzes.
