ACMT Environmental Medicine Modules

In 2013, ACMT initially launched our web-based Environmental Medicine Classroom that consisted of a series of modules on contemporary issues in environmental toxicology and environmental health developed by leading authorities in medical toxicology. We are able offer these courses to medical students, residents, and fellows across the United States. Surveys of participants six and 12 months post-completion indicate 90% of participants reported the modules enhanced their knowledge and awareness of environmental toxicology.

We have relaunched this offering in cooperation with the federal Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit (PEHSU) program. The modules will now be hosted within the PEHSU National Classroom: Through this Classroom, students can self-register, access individual modules, and track their progress. Not only will participants have access to ACMT’s educational courses, they will now be able to access many other educational products developed by the PEHSU program.
