About the Course

Forensic medicine deals with the application of medical knowledge for the administration of law and justice. The study of forensic medicine is completely different from other subjects. Here you study about crime and criminals, murder, rape, killings, poisonings, so on and so forth. A lot of real cases replete with crime and conspiracies are studied in this specialty. It could be a lot like reading a thriller, crime novel, but in a more scientific manner!
In this course on forensic medicine, we have extensively covered topics such as, legal procedures, medical law and ethics, identification, medicolegal autopsy, death and its causes, post-mortem changes, forensic traumatology, regional injuries, legal aspects of injuries, thermal deaths, starvation, mechanical asphyxia, virginity, pregnancy and delivery, sexual offences, abortion, forensic psychiatry, toxicology etc.

Target Audience

Medical students – Allopathy, Dental
Alternative Medicine students – Homeopathy, Ayurveda, Naturopathy and Yoga
Para/Allied medical students – Nursing, Physiotherapy, BSc Anatomy
Post graduate students – MD/MSc/PhD Anatomy

Course Delivery Format

This course is delivered entirely online. It consists of a series of comprehensive lectures by a professor in the subject, appropriately annotated with slides, animations and wherever necessary, interactive content. The delivery offers tremendous flexibility. You may pause a teacher while you refer to your textbooks (not includes) and to take notes. You may also rewind a segment to listen to the teacher again or you may skip a slide or two if you already know that bit. You may bookmark a segment that you wish to return to later, maybe to refresh just before your exams.  While the lessons in this course may be arranged in a particular order based on our curriculum, you have the flexibility to take them in order of your preference based on your personalized learning needs.
