Florida Dept. of Health, Bureau of Vital Statistics

The Bureau of Vital Statistics, in cooperation with the Florida Medical Association and the Florida Association of Medical Examiners, has developed an online tutorial for physicians.  This tutorial is constructed for physicians by physicians, providing an overview of the death registration process in Florida and how to go about properly completing the medical information on the death record. 

The tutorial provides sample case histories; an explanation of the physicians, the medical examiners, and the funeral director’s responsibilities in getting death records filed; how mortality data is used and why the death record is so important to families.
