The VIFM was established after a long and persistent campaign to create an organisation dedicated to providing reliable forensic services of the highest quality to the Victorian justice system and community.
As such, it attracted a dedicated group of people. These original staff members, many who are still working at the VIFM, were eager to build an organisation that is a trusted and innovative leader in global forensic medicine and science. Since 1988, the Institute has grown from a staff of 50 employees into a much larger and more complex organisation with over 180 staff members.
Throughout this 30 year history we have continued to attract people who are dedicated to their particular fields of expertise and who are committed to making a positive contribution to the health and safety of the community.
