Medical Examiner Investigators are responsible for conducting investigations regarding the mode of death (e.g. accident, suicide, homicide, or natural causes). The investigative work performed is distinguished from that of law enforcement officials or medical personnel, which focuses on criminal evidence, violations of the law, or biological cause of death. Medical Examiner Investigator I is the entry level class of the series. Incumbents work under immediate supervision and undergo training to eventually perform investigative work independently. Incumbents are responsible for locating and notifying next of kin which includes direct interaction with distraught families.

Examples of qualifying education/experience:
  • One (1) year paid experience as a Medical Examiner Investigator, Deputy Coroner, Forensic Autopsy Specialist, Forensic Embalmer, or Forensic Technician in a Coroner or Medical Examiner's facility; OR,
  • Two (2) years paid experience as any of the following: full-time Peace Officer, Paramedic, Registered Nurse, or served in a medical capacity dealing with patient care, within a medical facility; OR,
  • Possession of an associate's degree or completion of 60 semester units from an accredited U.S. college or university, or a certified foreign studies equivalency. Coursework must have included 15 semester units in medical terminology, anatomy, biology, chemistry, investigations, forensics, or physiology.
