Medical Toxicology within the University of Arizona Department of Emergency Medicine is committed to excellence in medical education, patient care, and scholarship. Our faculty physicians provide medical direction for the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Centerand are available for bedside consultation at both Banner - University Medical Center South (BUMCS) and Banner - University Medical Center Tucson (BUMCT). We lead the required medical toxicology rotation for emergency medicine residents and are frequently asked to lecture locally, nationally, and internationally.
Medical toxicology is a required rotation for second-year emergency residents in both the Banner - University Medical Center Tucson and South programs and for Emergency Medicine Pharm.D. residents. It is an elective for residents from other specialties, including Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, and Family Medicine. It is also a fourth-year Medical Student and Pharm.D. student elective. The rotation provides a mixture of formal didactic and clinical experiences and introduces the rotator to poison center operations.
The Medical Toxicology rotation is based out of the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center (APDIC) in the College of Pharmacy. It is located on the third floor of Drachman Hall. The rotation lasts four weeks for Banner University Medical Center - South EM residents and two weeks for Banner University Medical Center - Tucson EM residents. Rotators on elective can choose either length with permission from their program director. All rotators are expected to complete the pre-test prior to the first day of the rotation.
