About the Masters Conference

Save the Date: May 23-26, 2022

This conference is designed to provide the veteran, trained medicolegal death investigator with the latest advancements in the forensic sciences.

Attendees are expected to be knowledgeable of basic death investigation techniques. Graduates of the Medicolegal Death Investigators Training Course sponsored by Saint Louis University School of Medicine are provided this background.

The 2022 Masters Conference topics will be chosen with the practical educational needs of the medicolegal death investigator in mind. A nationally recognized faculty will present subject matter that will be useful to the attendees.

The Masters Conference is conducted every two years during the late summer,  however due to COVID-19 we have decided to skip 2021 and move the course to 2022. The course is designed to provide a colloquium on a regular basis for those who wish to keep current on issues in the field of death investigation. The topics change in each Masters Conference to reflect new information developing at that time and are not repeated at any future Masters Conference.
