Overview

The Department of Emergency Medicine’s Division of Medical Toxicology offers a two-year ACGME-certified Medical Toxicology Fellowship training program. Graduates of emergency medicine, pediatrics, preventive medicine, internal medicine or family medicine training programs are eligible. The training experience encompasses all facets of medical toxicology and academics including:

  • Adult and pediatric bedside consultation
  • Outpatient evaluation of occupational and environmental exposures
  • Poison Control Center direction
  • Basic or clinical research (inception, design, IRB/IACUC review, grant writing, analysis, and reporting)
  • Didactics (journal club, case conference, chapter reviews, and in-depth pharmacology conference)
  • Preparation of lectures for departments within Carolinas Medical Center, regional CME conferences, and national venues
  • Writing (case reports, text chapters, abstracts, and original research)
  • Instruction to resident, medical student, and PharmD student rotators

The development of the fellowship occurs in two phases. In the first year, emphasis is placed on clinical experience through bedside patient consultation, occupational clinic, and poison center case encounters. In the second year, academics endeavors (didactic, presentation, and writing skills) are refined. The fellow also executes a research project during the second year that is tailored to his/her professional interest.
