Division of Toxicology
The SBH Department of Emergency Medicine provides a robust training in toxicologic emergencies.
Residents spend 4 weeks at the New York City Poison Control Center at Bellevue Hospital. During this time, the residents will be taught the protocols for the management of toxic exposures and ingestions, as well as drug interactions and adverse medication reactions.
Our Division of Toxicology provides monthly core content lectures on toxicology, literature review and simulation training.
For residents interested in more in-depth toxicology training and who are interested in pursuing a career as a Toxicologist, our Medical Toxicology Track provides the opportunity to increase knowledge well beyond ACGME requirements, participate in scholarly activity, teach and pursue Toxicology Fellowship.
New York MATTERS
The SBHED Division of Toxicology is actively involved with establishing the framework for effective referral to outpatient opiate intervention resources in NYC through the New York MATTERS program. SBH is one of the first EDs in the city to actively link patients with the NY MATTERS resources.
