Definitions for medical jurisprudence

This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word medical jurisprudence


  1. Medical jurisprudence

    Medical jurisprudence is a branch of medicine that involves the study and application of medical knowledge in the legal field. Because modern medicine is a legal creation and medico-legal cases involving death, rape, paternity etc. require a medical practitioner to produce evidence and appear as an expert witness, these two fields have traditionally been inter-dependent. Forensic medicine is a narrower field that involves collection and analysis of medical evidence to produce objective information for use in the legal system.
