The San Mateo County Coroner's Office has established an internship program for students and professionals who are studying forensic science to have the opportunity to learn and assist with daily operations at the Coroner's Office. Interns will have the opportunity to work with the Investigations Division and the Pathology Division for a complete medico-legal death investigation perspective. Interns will be introduced to the responsibilities, objectives and duties of each division in addition to becoming familiar with the policies and procedures and being present during investigations and examinations.
