This course is an introductory core course that focus on general, basic methods and procedures used in the clinical management of poisoning in terms of potential toxic assessment and specific antidote measures.
Credit hours: 3+0

This course will impart the principles, concepts, and mechanisms by toxins affect selective organs on a pathophysiological basis. Students will be able to understand how inter-individual differences in exposures to certain toxins, will lead to different types of responses. They will be able to explain and deal with the reversible and irreversible consequences of the toxicology on target organ systems and the clinical diseases associated with this toxicity.

This course is designed to provide students with an up-to-date review of occupational, industrial, and environmental toxins that can affect human health. The study unit covers exposure pathways, absorption, distribution and storage of environmental toxins. Furthermore, the risk management options at pre- and post-release stages of industrial toxins are discussed through a case-based approach. It also addresses the environmental health issues of specific concern to pregnant women and children's health.

This course gives an overview of common naturally occurring plant, marine, and animal toxins, together with incidences of exposures to toxins and/or contaminated food stuffs. The study unit also focuses on the effect and significance of chemical non-pharmaceutical toxins and their impacts on health hazards. In addition, the management of natural and chemical toxins has been addressed.
Credit hours: 2+1

This course will provide the epidemiological and biostatistical concepts needed for the correct interpretation, evaluation, and understanding of toxicological human data. By the end of this course, students will be able to interpret and analyze biomedical study designs, including error and confounding factors. They will be then able to implement epidemiological and biostatistical concepts in interpreting systematic meta-analytical reviews of the incidence and prevalence of toxicological events.
Credit hour: 1+0

This course provides an overview of the prevalence, causes, characteristics, molecular, neurological, and biochemical mechanisms of abused substances. In addition, it will cover the pathophysiological changes, acute and chronic toxicity of substances of abuse and their diagnosis and management.
Credit hours: 2+1

This course focuses on the toxic effects of a number of important therapeutic drug classes that might be commonly encountered by healthcare professionals in clinical practice. The course covers the mechanism of toxicity of the drug class and individual agents in each class as well as the clinical features and management of drug toxicity using frequent case studies and critical thinking exercises. The following classes are addressed: analgesics and anti-inflammatory medications, drugs affecting the CNS, endocrine drugs, cardiopulmonary medications, anti-microbials, anti-neoplastic and   immunosuppressives, anti-histamines and anti-cholinergics, muscle relaxants, paediatric medication poisonings, pharmaceutical additives.
Credit hours: 3+1

This course involves the carrying out of an in depth review of a topic of interest related to clinical toxicology practice thus preparing students for the carrying out of clinical research. Students will search and critically assess the scientific literature available to them online to prepare a fully referenced paper. Students will have the opportunity to choose their own clinical toxicology related subject approved by the course instructor.
