For years it has been a curious fact that very few doctors have gone into the subspecialty of forensic pathology. In February 1978, there were 11 087 pathologists and only 354 had taken the forensic boards. It has been estimated by various surveys that less than 200 pathologists practice forensic pathology full time .
