Toxicology


Medical College of Wisconsin Emergency Medicine Residency ProgramAn elective rotation in toxicology offers emergency medicine residents an opportunity to become versed in all aspects of adult and pediatric injuries and illnesses caused by intentional and/or accidental poisonings. Residents treat drug overdoses, suicide attempts, environmental and occupational hazards, plant and animal toxins, and potentially bioterrorism.  The skills and knowledge acquired in this rotation are pertinent to the EM board examination.

Residents can opt for a two, three or four week rotation in clinical toxicology.  And we learn from the best.  Two faculty members are board-certified toxicologists, a rare distinction in the nation. In addition to didactic training and research, residents complete bedside toxicology consults at Froedtert and Children's Hospitals. 

In addition, we have exposure to consultations throughout the state with Wisconsin's only poison center.  Each year, the Poison Center receives more than 58,000 calls for phone consults.
