The Districts 5 & 24 Medical Examiner’s Office is pleased to announce an opportunity to join four experienced board certified forensic pathologists in central Florida.
The Office of the Medical Examiner is located in sunny Lake County, a stone’s throw from Florida’s coastal beaches and theme parks. Home to more than 1,000 freshwater lakes and rivers, Lake County offers a simple and natural view of “Old Florida”, with endless acres of preserves to include access to three state parks, one state forest, one national wildlife refuge and one national forest. Lake County offers a low cost of living with no state income tax, and safe and friendly communities. The charming city of Mount Dora is well known for its top-rated art festival, fall craft festival, sailing regatta, antique shops, and award-winning cuisine, and nearby Tavares has evolved as a seaplane culture. Lake County is minutes away from the Orlando area attractions and the Orlando International Airport to the southeast, Tampa only slightly further to the southwest, Gainesville to the north, and both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts within a short day trip.
The office is based in Lake County and has jurisdiction over Lake, Marion, Sumter, Citrus, Hernando, and Seminole counties, covering a large area of central Florida extending to the Gulf Coast. The area is well known for its citrus heritage, equestrian centers and numerous outdoor activities including freshwater and saltwater fishing.
The pathologists are volunteer faculty with the University of Central Florida, and are regularly involved in educational activities including with the regional trauma center, child death review team, and law enforcement. Our population is growing, influenced both by expanding developments and by fluctuations in seasonal/non-permanent residents. The districts are in the planning stages of building a new facility in anticipation of further population growth and additional staffing.
