Under the term of assessment of bodily harm, a series of medical actions are included aimed at knowing exactly the consequences that a certain harmful fact or event has had on the psychophysical integrity and health of a person, in order to obtain a final evaluation that allow the judge to establish the exact consequences of the same: criminal, labour, economic, family, moral.
Although at first it was a medical subspecialty linked to Legal Medicine, little by little it has been detached from it, becoming an independent specialty, which requires qualified professionals, with the necessary knowledge, both of a medical and legal nature. Thus, day by day the need for the participation of more than one medical discipline to describe our reality becomes clear.
It is reasonable, then, to promote the training of professionals in this discipline, whose teaching is not regulated during undergraduate studies in Medicine, having to resort to postgraduate training in it.
The exercise of the medical assessment of bodily harm requires that the professional have a series of aptitudes among which stand out: deep knowledge of the subject, competence, professional ethics, written communication skills and oral expression of scientific or technical questions in accessible language to the rest of the professionals involved in these Issues.
