Toxicology

Built into a longitudinal curriculum, residents will learn the presenting signs, symptoms, laboratory findings, pathophysiology, resuscitation and clinical management of common toxicologic emergencies resulting from therapeutic drug poisonings, drugs of abuse, natural toxins, occupational exposures and general household poisons with particular emphasis on clinical recognition of major toxidromes. The curriculum will be taught through a combination of innovative didactics, simulation and bedside training. The curriculum is led by Jeff Lapoint, DO, who was fellowship trained at NYC Poison Control Center/Bellevue in NYC. Dr Lapoint is one of the country’s leading experts on emerging drugs of abuse such as ‘Spice’ and ‘Bath Salts’.
