Tox Fellowship Applicants

UPDATE September 5, 2021: Our apologies, we are no longer able to accept new applications for the 2021-2022 academic year.  If you have any questions, please contact us.

Prerequisites to apply to the 2-year fellowship program leading to board certification are:

We are looking for fellows who will represent our service with the highest professionalism, demonstrate leadership running the toxicology service/daily rounds and being a model for residents and students, have a natural curiosity to explore and to learn, care about patients, and want to WORK HARD.  In turn, we are committed to investing in your education and providing you a solid educational experience in a fun environment to help you attain your goals.
