Master of Legal Medicine

As I have stated previously, the College aims to achieve specialist recognition for its Fellows, now obtained by Ministerial Council approval following a submission to the Ministerial Council by the relevant National Board. I consider a tertiary degree in the form of a Master of Legal Medicine (MLM) to be integral in attaining specialist recognition.

While most medical Colleges do not appear to involve tertiary institutions in their specialty training, an appropriately structured post-graduate tertiary qualification is an important component of training specialists in legal medicine, particularly as a major component is knowledge of the law as it pertains to clinical practice and the provision of evidence.

It is envisaged that a revamped MLM program will be based on what the College is currently offering with its short courses (BLI, ALI and EW courses) but with greater scope and variety, more formalised training and appropriate accreditation of the training undertaken.

As I recently advised the September 2015 annual general meeting in Queenstown, it is proposed that the College would be responsible for both the financial and administrative conduct of the MLM program and if feasible, provide legally trained medical teaching staff. It would seek accreditation through a University and remunerate the University for the fees associated with formal accreditation.
