The Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine (VIFM) provides high quality specialist medical and scientific services to support the Victorian justice and healthcare systems.
Our medical and scientific staff work with a range of justice agencies to provide expert forensic evidence that assists police, medical practitioners, legal practitioners, courts and tribunals. A significant proportion of this work involves medical death investigations for the Coroners Court of Victoria.
Our forensic services experts also support National and International partners including Police, Humanitarian organisations and Justice agencies. Occasionally our staff will be deployed overseas to assist with the emergency response to mass disasters.
