Medical Toxicology is a unique and complex specialty. Few Virginia physicians are certified as Medical Toxicologists by the American Board of Medical Specialists; the University of Virginia Health System is home to 6 of them. Medical toxicologists have the expertise to identify and treat conditions including:
- Acute and chronic toxicity
- Adverse drug reactions
- Workplace or environmental chemical exposures
- Criminal poisoning
The University of Virginia Medical Toxicology fellowship is located in beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia. The Medical Toxicology Fellowship is a GME funded fully accredited fellowship with a curriculum that is designed to take advantage of the numerous opportunities at the University of Virginia. Our faculty is enthusiastic about teaching and dedicated to training outstanding fellows with a passion for the specialty.
The Telemedicine Program at the University of Virginia provides interactive clinical support, medical and patient education using high-speed broadband communications to the underserved areas of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Currently, there are over 50 active sites within the UVa Telemedicine network. We broadcast educational lectures using telemedicine video conferencing to healthcare staff at hospitals in remote, rural, medically underserved locations.
The Division of Medical Toxicology, in association with the Blue Ridge Poison Center, work is closely associated with Emergency Preparedness at the University and Health System. Fellows are encouraged to participate in Emergency Preparedness Committee activities, Regional Task Forces, Weapons of Mass Destruction Task Force and assist with the hospital ED decontamination team training.
