The American College of Medical Toxicology will offer a comprehensive medical toxicology review course September 29 to October 1, 2016 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) June 28, 2016 -- The American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT) will hold its 7th biennial Medical Toxicology Board Review Course on September 29th to October 1st 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 toxicologistsand 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 a 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 Evan Schwarz, MD, a course leader, “The Board Review Course is an essential tool for those preparing to take the certification exam offered by the American Board of Emergency Medicine, but also serves as a great refresher in all aspects of human poisoning for anyone who wants to broaden their knowledge of medical toxicology." A discounted registration fee for the course is available through July 10, 2016.
