About Medical Toxicology at Cardiff University

This programme is designed for doctors, pharmacists and other scientists who wish to develop a broad understanding of the principles underlying medical toxicology.

It is particularly designed for clinical pharmacologists in training, specialist trainees in accident and emergency medicine or acute medicine and other disciplines, and those intending to enter or already working in the pharmaceutical industry.

It is also designed for those working in poisons centres, for health professionals, including hospital and community pharmacists and for those with a degree in Life Sciences or other individuals seeking a career in the government regulatory bodies or the pharmaceutical or chemical industry.

The course aims to:

  • Introduce you to the broad principles underlying medical toxicology.
  • Seek to integrate an understanding of the mechanisms by which drugs and other chemicals produce toxic effects and how these can be predicted, treated and whenever possible, prevented.

A key aim of the teaching programme is to encourage critical thinking, as we aim to equip you with practical and factual knowledge and also provide a basic approach to toxicological problems, encouraging attitudes and abilities which will be of lasting value in the future.

This course has three exit qualifications. Please follow the links below for further information:

  • Medical Toxicology MSc
  • Medical Toxicology PgDip Full time distance learning 1 year
  • Medical Toxicology PgDip Part time distance learning 2 years
  • Medical Toxicology PgCert

The PgDip stage does not require the PgCert as a prerequisite to study. You can choose whether to start with the PgCert or start directly with the PgDip.

Initially all students must first complete the 1 or 2 year PgDip stage before being able to progress to the 1 year MSc stage.

The full MSc takes 2 or 3 years to complete in total depending on whether the PgDip is studied as part or full time.
