Natacha Rivera
Forensic Medicine

Helping teach college freshmen to become more aware about the dangers of relationship abuse, stalking and sexual violence sparked Natacha Rivera’s (MS/FM ‘18) interest in forensic medicine. Now, as a PCOM student, Natacha works to free wrongly convicted prisoners by applying skills acquired in her forensic medicine classes and looks forward to using what she has learned to help make a difference in someone’s life.

Created and overseen by a board-certified forensic pathologist, PCOM’s forensic medicine program provides students with the analytical and critical thinking skills needed to succeed within the field. Interested in a rewarding career in the field of forensic medicine?
