What is forensic medicine? Dr Hempling will talk us through its many forms using examples from his varied career. This fascinating session will also explore the history of forensic medicine, where we are now and what the future may have in store.
Dr Stephen Hempling worked as a GP for 25 years, whilst also working as a police surgeon from 1972 until 1991. Since 1997 he has worked full time as a Forensic Medical and Medico-legal Expert with a vast range of expertise including causes and interpretation of injuries, child and adult sexual assault and medical negligence, particularly involving GPs.
7:30pm for an 8pm start.
Cafe Scientifique is a forum for the discussion of important and interesting scientific issues. They are
