Carmel East Hospital, St. Ann's Hospital, Grant Hospital and Upper Valley Medical Center.
Dr. Krause began his solo practice as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon in Westerville, Ohio in 1981, after matriculating from his 3-year residency at Detroit Receiving Hospital, under the auspices of the Wayne State University College of Medicine. Prior to his residency at Detroit Receiving Hospital he spent a year as an intern at St. Vincent's Hospital in Toledo, Ohio.

Approximately fourteen years ago while practicing oral and maxillofacial surgery during the day, Dr. Krause went through the police academy for six months of night school and became OPOTA-certified.

He also completed the six hundred and twenty-five hours of police instruction with 'perfect attendence'. He is currently a Sergeant (Res.) with the Westerville Division of Police.
After being commissioned with the Westerville Division of Police, Dr. Krause advanced his education once again by attending the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington, DC. This opened the door with the Franklin County Coroner's Office.
