I am a chemistry-forensic science major at Alabama State University. I wanted to get my Master's and PhD in chemistry. However, I have recently narrowed it down and decided that I would like to be a medical examiner.

I understand that I have to go to a medical school. Would that equal going to a university with a medical college or department? Or would I need to go to a medical only school such as John Hopkins. I originally picked schools such as University of Alabama in Birmingham, University of Miami, Florida International, and University of Florida. But they all have a school or college of medicine.

Am I on the right track?
