Special Courses

No special courses are available or planned at this time.

One-week long intensive practical courses are presented from time to time at the BOLD laboratory's facilities in beautiful Vancouver, Canada. Opportunities are provided to study modern analysis methods in detail. Understanding the role and responsibilities of the lab analyst provides the odontologist working on cases with a better appreciation for proper methods to recognize, recover, preserve and submit the best possible forensic evidence.

One- and two-day courses in disaster victim identification and disaster response management are presented each year. These courses include didactic and practical exercises focused on mock mass casualty incidents. Dental examinations are completed, records are produced and entered into the WinID computer program and victim identifications are searched for based on best match possibilities.
