The American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT) will hold its 6th biennial Medical Toxicology Board Review Course on September 20-22 at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. The course was developed to prepare medical toxicologists for both the board certification and recertification examinations. The course content additionally serves as a useful review to clinical toxicologists and other health professionals who encounter patients with toxicology problems in their practice or wish to broaden their understanding of issues related to human poisoning beyond their daily practice.
The ACMT Medical Toxicology Board Review Course features presentations from nationally recognized medical toxicologists and capitalizes on the strengths of the multidisciplinary faculty. There will be visual stimulus sessions where attendees review images of clinical findings, toxic plants and mushrooms, and chemical structures for which recognition may aid in determining toxic effects in humans. Participants will receive an electronic syllabus, which includes access to over 700 practice questions and answers. According to Howard Greller, MD, a course organizer, “The Board Review Course combines multiple teaching modalities and techniques to cover the entirety of a very complex specialty in the span of three days. It’s guaranteed to be challenging and fun for everyone." A discounted registration fee for the course is available through June 30, 2014.
