Is Forensic Science available as a specialization subject in Doctor of Medicine (MD) similar to Cardiology, Gynecology, Pathology, Veterinary, Neurology, Ophthalmology etc specialization subjects ?

i.e. MD - Forensic Science.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Hi Prashant,

Forensic Sciences is not a part of medical degree. It is a specialization that does not require medical degree although a lot medical knowledge is taught and required. However, there is a branch of Pathology called forensic pathology MD degree.
