OCME works to increase public understanding of the forensic sciences and to encourage the next generation of leaders in the field. The agency reaches students, communities and professionals through classroom lectures, career days, conferences, and related events.

Please note, OCME does not offer tours of its facilities to the general public. If you would like an OCME expert to visit your location for a talk, you may request an expert speaker.

OMCE offers year-round internships across many of its departments. If you would like to be considered for an opportunity, please make an internship inquiry. Interns must be at least 18 years of age, and other qualifications may apply, depending on the position.
