A lecture on toxicology

Medical Toxicology is the original subspecialty of Emergency Medicine.  While the oldest, it is still growing and evolving.  The service is dedicated to teaching students, residents, and fellows about medical toxicology, including addiction medicine.  The service provides both inpatient and outpatient evaluations. In addition, we collaborate with the Missouri Poison Center and offer telemedical direction.  Several of the section members are involved with research and national toxicology and emergency medicine organizations.
