The sponsoring institution must be at Junior College level or above. A professor must recommend the applicant by providing a written recommendation complete with a student resume. Documentation that the applicant is enrolled in an accredited course of study in a related field is also required.
The intern will need his/her own insured and dependable transportation, (Will include some death scene work and autopsy assignments). Computer skills with Microsoft Word, Excel, and Access are necessary.
Important note: Since Coroners deal with protected medical information and death investigations there are statutory penalties for the disclosure of confidential information.

Interns are required to adhere to this agreement and could be prosecuted for violations for failure to do so.
