Medical Examiner

A medical examiner is someone who performs autopsies to determine an individual's cause of death. The difference between a medical examiner and a coroner is that medical examiners do more detailed work on bodies as coroners do not. To check out what a medical examiner does check your local listings for DR. G, Medical Examiner, on the Disovery Health Channel.

A medical examiner is a doctor with specialized training in forensics while a coroner is usually an elected position and does not require a medical background of any sorts. Coroners will outsource much of the forensic work and are more administrator than anything else.
