    Historically, the forensic psychiatrist has been a physician with a special interest in medicolegal aspects of psychiatry, sometimes but not necessarily supplemented by individual study, specialized training, and appropriate experience. Even today, any physician is free to declare himself a forensic psychiatrist and to deliver forensic psychiatric services with no specialized training or supervision, though few non-psychiatrists would do so, and most psychiatrists would at least read a few books on what they believe to be the subject.
