About

This programme is designed for doctors, pharmacists and other scientists who wish to develop a broad understanding of the principles underlying medical toxicology.

Overview

This Postgraduate Diploma in Medical Toxicology is a one year full-time distance learning course for medical personnel.

It is particularly designed for clinical pharmacologists in training, specialist trainees in accident and emergency medicine or acute medicine and other disciplines, and those intending to enter or already working in the pharmaceutical industry.

It is also designed for those working in poisons centres, for health professionals, including hospital and community pharmacists and for those with a degree in Life Sciences or other individuals seeking a career in the government regulatory bodies or the pharmaceutical or chemical industry.

The course aims to:

  • Introduce you to the broad principles underlying medical toxicology.
  • Seek to integrate an understanding of the mechanisms by which drugs and other chemicals produce toxic effects and how these can be predicted, treated and whenever possible, prevented.

A key aim of the teaching programme is to encourage critical thinking, as we aim to equip you with practical and factual knowledge and also provide a basic approach to toxicological problems, encouraging attitudes and abilities which will be of lasting value in the future.

Distinctive features

This is a distance learning course delivered entirely online so students can choose when and where to study.  Case studies will provide opportunities to apply the theoretical knowledge in solving problems. This course is designed to give skills to candidates working or planning to work in various toxicological fields which include clinical, laboratory, environmental and occupational and also in an advisory capacity.

The modules are the same as for the part-time distance learning Postgraduate Diploma in Medical Toxicology but are taken over a single year rather than two years. It is therefore a more intensive version and applicants will need to be confident they can commit the requisite amount of time to completing their studies before commencing.
