Training as a toxicologist (DGPT)

In 1979, the then existing toxicology section of the German Society for Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology launched its DGPT toxicology qualification program to promote the education and training of young people in toxicology. It offers theoretical training in all areas of the discipline of toxicology.

The aim of the program is to impart skills and knowledge according to DGPT toxicology training guidelines. After passing the final exam, the participant will be awarded certification as “Expert in Toxicology, DGPT”.
