Further to the application of the Royal Decree of 16 March, 1999, at the end of the first two years of training, the candidate will receive an attestation proving that he has successfully accomplished a specific university training course. Upon fulfilment of the above-described training requirements, the teaching committee will award the academic title in Legal Medecine.
This title does not replace official recognition by the ministerial validation committee. It attests the successful completion of an academic and scientific study programme in the context of specialised training leading to this validation. The university certificate in medical expertise is awarded to candidates who have succeeded in their theoretical studies, participated in the seminars and the practical work experience periods and successfully defended a thesis. It can constitute a
specific form of training, independent of the recognition as a specialist doctor in Legal Medecine.
