Advanced Comprehensive Toxicology

Course Description

The American College of Toxicology (ACT) is offering an advanced course, “Advanced Comprehensive Toxicology,” to complement “Toxicology for Pharmaceutical and Regulatory Scientists.” In this five-day intensive course, attendees will be provided detailed descriptions of the principles of toxicology, effects of xenobiotics on organ systems, discussions of specific classes of toxicants, mechanisms of toxicity, risk assessment, and other contemporary toxicological concepts. The content of this course will provide information that could be helpful to those seeking certification in toxicology or to those seeking more advanced training in toxicology. The faculty consists of well-recognized experts in their field of study and most are Board Certified by the American Board of Toxicology.

This week-long course will begin on Sunday evening with an orientation and reception and will end on Friday with a practice exam, comprised with questions of the type and rigor found on the American Board of Toxicology exam. The registration fee includes continental breakfast, morning and afternoon breaks, and lunch.
