Applying for a Medical Toxicology Fellowship

All medical toxicologists must complete a fellowship in medical toxicology. Fellowships are approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and consist of two years of training. 


About Fellowships:

  • There are 28 fellowship training programs, and typically about 70 fellows in training at any one time.
  • Medical Toxicology Fellowships now participate in the NRMP Match, with the Match date on the second Wednesday of November for the program starting the following July. Interested applicants are encouraged to apply and interview early in order to participate in the Match.
  • Fellowship programs are typically small and diverse in what they offer. Although all accredited programs must adhere to a core curriculum, some place varied emphasis on research, clinical care, scholarly activities or administration. Some offer additional experiences and degrees such as an MPH, or international travel opportunities.
