Welcome to the IACME

The International Association of Coroners & Medical Examiners


The International Association of Coroners & Medical Examiners (IACME) has over 85 years of experience in the presentation of educational seminars for the purpose of assisting Coroners and Medical Examiners and other forensic specialists in the performance of their duties.

This commitment is enshrined in the Association’s mission statement, “Dedicated to the promotion of excellence in medicolegal death investigation through collaboration, education, and accreditation."

NEW! The Center for Disease Control published a COVID-19 FAQ for Medicolegal Death Investigators, with updated information about the handling of confirmed or potential COVID-19 cases.

COVID-19 Survey:  Research on the medicolegal response to the COVID-19 pandemic is being conducted through Washington State University. The survey is 16-questions long and should take no longer than 10 minutes, with the questions based around testing protocols, facilities, and resources. Please participate to provide feedback on this important cause! Take the survey here.

The annual training symposium scheduled in July 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  All members who registered will receive a refund.  IACME appreciates your anticipated understanding during this challenging time.

Below are our vendors who were planning to participate in the training symposium.  Click on the logo to be directed to their webpage.



The IACME offers accreditation for offices of all sizes. This certification process provides coroner and medical examiner offices the opportunity to self assess and subsequently have auditors, trained by the association, to review applicable standards.

The procedure allows coroner and medical examiner offices to ensure they are conducting business practices and procedures in compliance with international standards.
