This ACGME approved fellowship is designed to give fellows ample opportunities to publish and gain valuable hands-on experience in toxicology and is based at Rocky Mountain Poison & Drug Safety (RMPDS), a department of the Denver Health and Hospital Authority. Poison center training and most didactics are based at RMPDS, and bedside clinical care is provided at Denver Health Medical Center, the University of Colorado Hospital, and Children’s Hospital of Colorado. Clinical training and mentorship are provided by a committed group of 28 board-certified medical toxicologists and 2 ABAT-certified clinical toxicologists. Medical toxicology’s scope of practice is broad and includes acute and chronic poisoning, adverse drug reactions, substance abuse and withdrawal, envenomation, workplace chemical exposure, drug effects and metabolism, and mass exposure to industrial chemicals and chemical, biologic, and radiologic weapons.
This fellowship requires a two-year commitment and graduates of the fellowship are eligible to take the subspecialty examination in Medical Toxicology which is approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties. The sponsoring boards for this examination are the American Board of Emergency Medicine, the American Board of Pediatrics, and the American Board of Preventive Medicine.
