I'm watching this show, The X-Files, and one of the FBI agents performs an autopsy. Now I found this odd, so I did some research on this character's background, and apparently she is a medical school graduate but joined the FBI shortly thereafter. Doubtful she completed a pathology residency. Could she legitimately be performing autopsies with just an M.D. and no further training (perhaps a internship year to get her license), or is it a load of junk? Wouldn't she have to be a forensic pathologist to be doing autopsies for the FBI?
