Undergraduate Education Program

This program introduces undergraduates to topics in various toxicology disciplines, including an opportunity to explore and interpret data. Students meet with graduate students and academic program directors to learn how to submit strong graduate school applications and the merits of specific graduate programs, as well as how to succeed in graduate school. They also network with SOT mentors and toxicologists in various employment sectors to become more familiar with what life is like in different career paths in toxicology.

Details on how the 2021 Undergraduate Education Program will be presented based on the all-virtual nature of the 2021 meeting will be shared in the coming months. This web page contains an outline of the traditional schedule of events and sessions when the Undergraduate Education Program is presented in-person.
