Student Education

Clinical Toxicology Clerkships

All emergency medicine residents at the University of New Mexico complete at least one four-week clinical toxicology clerkship in the poison center during their residency training. The rotation emphasizes the continuum of poisoning care - often beginning with a call to the regional poison center, and is comprised of bedside patient rounds, poison center paper rounds, clinical toxicology review session, and didactic/discussion sessions on all major poisoning topics. Since many of the UNM emergency medicine residents elect to practice in New Mexico hospitals, the poison center training has been an important tool in establishing strong relationship with emergency physicians throughout the State.
