The Indiana Poison Center at Indiana University Health offers a one-year PGY2 Toxicology Pharmacy Residency. The goal of the residency is to train practitioners to perform the professional, administrative, and research roles in a regional poison center, clinical toxicology service, and academic environment. The residency will prepare the resident for credentialing by the American Board of Applied Toxicology through the development of clinical toxicology skills and the management of poisoned patients.
The resident will provide poison center services to the state of Indiana through the Indiana Poison Center and participate in the Medical Toxicology Service, which consults on poisoned patients at IU Health Methodist Hospital, IU Health University Hospital, Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, and Eskenazi Hospital. Additional opportunities include certification as an Advanced Hazmat Life Support Instructor and attendance at the North American Congress of Clinical Toxicology and ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting.
