Jan Garavaglia, formerly chief medical examiner in the Orlando area and star of the Discovery Channel reality series “Dr. G: Medical Examiner” notes that physicians are becoming more involved in what once was a taboo subject: end-of-life care and helping patients and families make better-informed decisions. The former clerkship faculty member at our Orlando Regional Campus presented a two-hour CME-credit lecture on this history of death certification, its importance for public health and how it parallels the formation of medical examiner officers in the U.S. She included information on how to certify deaths correctly and what a medical examiner does, so physicians may better understand the last steps taken at the end of a patient’s life.
