Postgraduate training was formerly called internship and residency. The training takes place on the job and it is the equivalent of an apprenticeship in a trade. Unlike medical school, which costs about $25,000 per year in tuition, postgraduate training pays a salary of about $20,000 per year.

In the premodern period, dissections of bodies were undertaken only as a means of limiting or stopping postmortem decomposition. Dissection was practiced by the early Egyptians. Dissection of the bodies of deceased persons is forbidden by Middle Eastern religions. It also was forbidden by Egyptian polytheism, although it was required when bodies were prepared for mummification. The prohibitions imposed by Judaism, Islam, and Christianity vary. Such prohibitions occasionally make the performance of an autopsy difficult, if not impossible.

Civil and criminal litigation often arises from the work done by forensic pathologists. A few forensic pathologists work primarily as consultants in litigation.

When a death is reported to the coroner or medical examiner, the first issue is to determine whether jurisdiction exists to investigate the death.
