Why choose MCW?

We are a new fellowship training program. We are the only program in the state of Wisconsin and are in its largest and most diverse city, Milwaukee. Our institution employs the only active medical toxicologists in the state. We are a close group of six medical toxicologists and two PharmD toxicologists. We have national and regional leaders in our group. Your education will be broad-based and focused on not just making you a good toxicologist but preparing you to be a leader on a national and international level. Milwaukee is a great and affordable place to live. You will be supported in your desire to practice your primary specialty, and the opportunities for such practice are plentiful. Your compensation will be at a minimum competitive, but most likely superior to other programs, without the need for excessive moonlighting.

Didactics and Supervision

The Fellowship is a two-year program with progressive and graduated responsibility as fellows’ skill develops. In order to ultimately function as an independent medical toxicologist, our program has training goals in three areas: clinical care, education, and research.

All fellows are exposed to academic activities in terms of structured teaching responsibilities and a research requirement. Components of the training program include:

  • Daily, formal didactics from faculty members covering the entire core curriculum of medical toxicology as put forward by ABEM
  • Inpatient medical toxicology consultation service, serving three hospitals
    • Children’s Wisconsin
    • Froedtert Hospital
    • Zablocki VA Medical Center
  • Outpatient pediatric environmental health clinic at Children’s Wisconsin
  • Outpatient occupational and environmental toxicology experience
  • Countless teaching opportunities to other fellows, residents, medical and pharmacy students
  • Simulation
  • Close relationship with the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner
  • Mentored research from conception and IRB submission through completion and manuscript preparation
  • Graduate level classes in statistics and epidemiology
  • Submission of abstracts to international toxicology conferences
  • Administrative management and medical direction of poison centers
Eligibility

All applicants must be medical school graduates (MD or DO degree) and have completed an ACGME residency program. Board-eligible physicians in any primary discipline of medicine are encouraged to apply. A Wisconsin medical license (full or in-training) and current DEA certification are also required.
