Third Joint American-Israeli Medical Toxicology Conference

The American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT) in conjunction with the Israeli Society of Toxicology (IST) is proud to announce the Third Joint American-Israeli Medical Toxicology Conference. ACMT and IST previously held joint conferences in 2010 and in 2013. This third conference, held at the Rambam Health Care Campus in Haifa, Israel, will be on November 19-20, 2019.

In addition to the conference, the Emergency Division of the Israeli Ministry of Health has also arranged for a multi-casualty toxicological incident drill at Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital in Jerusalem. The drill is scheduled for November 21, 2019, and all conference faculty are invited. 

All conference sessions will be held in English. Details on registration and accommodation coming soon!
