The members of the "Working Group on External Postmortem Examination" of the German Society of Legal Medicine have developed a new educational program (curriculum) for physicians to improve the quality of the external postmortem examination of corpses. This curriculum is based on knowledge which is imparted during medical studies in the discipline legal medicine and aims to improve the theoretical knowledge of physicians.
