Florida Medical Examiner System

The State of Florida adopted the medical examiner system in 1970. The system was designed to correlate in most part with the state judicial districts.  Thus the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner Department corresponds with the 11th judicial district. You can learn more about the statewide system by visiting the  FDLE - Medical Examiners Commission website or the F.A.M.E. (Florida Association of Medical Examiners) website.

Florida statutes place certain categories of death under medical examiner jurisdiction. Generally medical examiners investigate all non-natural deaths within their districts as well as a small number of natural deaths as outlined in the statutes. Florida Statute 406 and Administrative Code 11-G
