Our dynamic curriculum and didactics are consistent with core content of Medical Toxicology as established by the American Board of Emergency Medicine. We are constantly looking for opportunities to enhance our education and service.

We know that board review preparation is a major concern for fellowship applicants. To prepare our fellows, we purchase the four-day ACMT board review course for the fellows that happens every two years. Fellows will have protected time to attend this review course during fellowship. Additionally, every fourth Tuesday, our curriculum rotates to cover all board review topics. In a fellows’ two-year fellowship with us, they will complete two board review courses: one by the ACMT that occurs over four days, and another lectured by our faculty over their two years in our program.


Our Medical Toxicology Fellowship curriculum topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Adverse drug reactions and drug interactions
